WinUSB is a simple tool that allows you to create your own Windows installation on USB stick from an ISO image or DVD disk in Linux Mint. In WinUSB not difficult, all you need is a few clicks, a little suspense and a USB stick with image ready.

The program is very easy to use, understand will not be easy.
