Windows 7: Didn't correctly set up dual boot of 7 and xp

To prevent the stick from autostarting during install restarts I would set HD to boot first in BIOS setup, then trigger the stick to boot from the one-time BIOS Boot menu key at boot. It should be listed under USB, Removable or HD's though the category may need to be expanded to reveal it.

Whats the best free program to burn an ISO to a disk? The program that was mentioned earlier tells me my trial period has expired and I have magic ISO but it isn't giving me the option to burn an ISO

Do not reinstall MagicISO or other XPired old school tools which are not compatibile with Win7.

Stick with the methods and tools in the tutorial to maintain a perfect reinstall.
