Hello I am not trying to insult you guys I am just accepting the fact I cannot due what I use my PC to do on opensuse I love to way it’s designed but the compatability with the games I love just is not possible. I would love to return someday when I can figure out dual boot myself but for now I want my windows 7 back. How do I burn my image I saved onto a usb? I looked around and I keep hitting walls.
not sure if anyone got what you are asking. We all understood that you cannot play the games which are available on w* here and for now you cannot figure out a dual-booting. so what are you trying to ask about an image? what image? the os with all the settings to be saved as an image? why? it might take a long time until you get back(if) and then you can install the version available at that time(15.x). just kidding. or is just that you have same images and you don’t know how to copy them on your usb? please clarify.
I am trying to figure out how to burn my iSO to my USB so I can run windows and then setup dualboot, in other words I need to burn my ISO to my USB and I cannot figure our how to do so on opensuse the methods I used back on windows doesn’t work on linux

Have you tried winusb?

May I please get a guide on how to use this? simply searching and launching winusb does do anything I must be doing something wrong.
i would imaging you need to be root user to run it, I believe it runs from the command line as well, so something like winusb --help should give you the syntax to use.
ok good now I need to figure out how to format my usb xD
Honestly it’s not clear to me what image you want to burn to a USB.
an iSO for installing an OS and now I get sh: gksudo: command not foundsh: gksudo: command not found I really don’t know wtf im doing xD
You don’t have to format the USB the ISO is a formatted image it just needs to be binary copied to the USB.
If you want to recover the USB for Windows format you must make a partition on it and format it to NTFS or DOS.
But if it’s Windows
Windows has it’s own USB creator tool
I have never made a Windows USB for installing Windows outside of Windows itself.
It may be possible of course
You could I suppose use the .iso in Virtual Box. Install it then download the USB tool to create a USB
well i got the winusb to work until I hit this wall… “sh: gksudo: command not found” how do I fix this?
Use the command line as root user, it shouldn’t ask about gksudo?
su - winusb --format <iso path> /dev/sdX winusb --install <iso path> /dev/sdX
Where sdX is your usb device.
“-bash: syntax error near unexpected token” `( how do I fix this?
You need to show the command you used, and any other output. Sure it wasn’t a typo?
I used winusb --install /home/Raid/Windows 7 SP1 Ue (64 Bit).iso /run/media/Raid/3276-D7AB/
You need to escape the spaces or rename the iso image plus it’s the device not the mount point…
umount /run/media/Raid/3276-D7AB lsblk [your usb device will be listed as /dev/sdX something] winusb --install /home/Raid/Windows\ 7\ SP1\ Ue\ \(64\ Bit\).iso /dev/sdX
I renamed the iso but I am still stuck as well as I am not sure how to go from here but I am supplying a screenshot I hope this helps.
You need to run the following command and post the output;
Your using the wrong name… we want the /dev/sdX name, this is the ‘device’ name nothing to do with the ‘mount’ name two complete different things
