Hello i am running Ubuntu 14.04 and wish to create a Windows 7 Install USB and yes i do have a product key to verify. i have used UNetbootin and the drive is formatted to ntfs and have tried fat32. it goes to a gui where the only selection option is default and hitting any key resets the automatic boot 10-0 to reset and when it reaches 0 it restarts. i tried installing through the terminal and throws an error of missing operating system. any possible way would help.

The hardware is a Desktop Acer And These Are My Specs
this computer one originally had windows installed back in 2012 when i bought it. in 2013 i installed ubuntu, about four months windows crashed and i just formatted the hard drive and installed ubuntu. now i got an external drive and wish to install windows 7 to that drive.
APU :x2 AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics
RAM: 4 GB
(where i plan to install windows) WESTERN DIGITAL 500gb Hard Drive

and i do have a dvd drive just a read only because when i went to burn, i went on for more than 3 hours before i noticed my drive was read only.

and before you guys say it the sudo dd command (sudo dd if=/path/to/iso/windows.iso of=/dev/sdb1 bs=4M; sync) does not work either because it throws a missing operating system error.
