Create a bootable Windows 8.1 DVD from Linux Mint?


I don't currently have any OS in my laptop. I booted it from Linux Mint 18 Xfce Live USB. I have a DVD to which I want to burn Windows 8.1 (64-bit) and make it bootable. I would like to know, if Ubuntu built in ISO image writer, can make burn the Windows 8.1 (64-bit) iso to bootable.

If not, are there any alternatives to burn Windows 8.1 (64-bit) ISO as bootable to a DVD from Linux Mint 18 Xfce USB?

The last one that transferred successfully for me was Vista. Windows-8.x & later have a different format which I decided was ios9660 on a UDF filesystem. Don't presume udf is even compiled into the kernel. I have a nasty BIOS in this laptop (Samsung NP350C-A05UK). Windows-8.x & later puked on it. Windows-8 also puked updating to 8.1 and is teetotally knackered. Lucky I use linux, not windows.

Windows-8.x is EFI capable and that was under development in linux as I tried it. Things may be handled better now.

EDIT: One idea that strikes me is this
1. Install linux, and virtualbox, vmware, or something for VMs
2. In linux loop mount the UDF Volume. You may then see the iso.
3. Loop mount the iso9660 system, & try to install to VM. IIRC, the iso wasn't bootable.
