PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A REPEATED QUESTION AS THE QUESTION SIMILAR TO THIS HAVE ALL FAILED TO SOLVE MY PROBLEM.
I have tried to install windows 7 on ubuntu-14.04 with a live USB stick, but I have been terribly unsuccessful in doing so. Please note the following steps which I have followed from many different sources :-
1).I used a “GParted” editor to create space on hard disk for windows7 which is of the format NTFS. (So this is the partition I have now for windows7 displayed on Gparted /dev/sda4 NTFS 273GB and FLAG is set to “boot”).
2).I used “UNETBOOTIN” to create a live usb of windows7.
3).From the BIOS menu I try to boot from the same USB.(The usb is also of the format NTFS)
4).But after this step the USB is not detected at all and the ubuntu OS starts as usual.
NOTE 1 :- Please note that the same usb is detected on another machine or laptop which has only windows installed in it, so therefore i believe that I have created the live usb appropriately.
NOTE 2 :- Also, I can use a live usb of ubuntu for booting on my machine, hence I also believe that detecting the live usb via BIOS on my machine is also not a problem.
Its just that the Windows7 live USB is going undetected. First of all, Please let me know if at all its possible to install windows7 on Ubuntu.?? If Yes, please suggest me a solution.It would be of great help for me to learn abt this and for others as well.
Thank you so much!!
