UEFI support?

Written by fpemud on 2015-04-29 at 01h 42min.

My computer uses UEFI mode for booting.

When I'm using WinUSB, I encounters the following error:
fpemud-workstation / # winusb --format /cn_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x86_dvd_u_677486.iso /dev/sde -v

After I install efi-64 support for grub, there's still an error:
fpemud-workstation garbage # winusb --format /media/garbage/root/pkg-garbage/fpemud-virtmanager-plugin-win7/files/win7/data/cn_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x86_dvd_u_677486.iso /dev/sde -v

LiveUSB of many Linux distros support dual boot from legacy BIOS and UEFI, WinUSB needs this support too.

The following is a github issue:

ISO corruption

Written by tc424 on 2015-04-14 at 09h 14min.

Russ, I've seen the same thing twice - I'm wondering if it's not mounting the ISOs read-only? ISO9660 is obviously a read-only filesystem anyway, but UDF isn't .. Will investigate further when I have the time..

Wrong link

The correct link in Mikael's comment should have been http://onetransistor.blogspot.com/2014/09/make-bootable-windows-usb-from-ubuntu.html
