I cant get the source code to use on my Fedora. When I click on http://en.congelli.eu/download/winusb/winusb-1.0.7.tar.gz , it says "404 not found".
Please, fix this ASAP. I cant create a windows usb without it.
You are not trying to force people to use Ubuntu, are you? :/

I am trying to rescue a Windows 8.1 PC with a failure to boot, because I believe the boot tracks are damaged.
My live system is Ubuntu 14.10, and I have sucessfully installed WinUSB despite the error in the instructions where the suggestion is
sudo sh -c "sed -i 's/utopic/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/colingille-freshlight-utopic.list"
Instead off what it should be
sudo sh -c "sed -i 's/utopic/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/colingille-ubuntu-freshlight-utopic.list"
So I am trying to use WinUSB to create a bootable rescue USB .... but when I try to run I get "Installation failed ! Exit Code: 256 Log:
Can you provide any guidance on what the problem is and how to resolve it?
