Burning Windows 7 onto multiple disks

I have Windows 7 here but the .iso is 3.74GB and my disks are only 700MB.

Is there a way to burn Windows 7 to multiple disks? So it would be installing and ask for disk 2, 3 and so on? I bought a pack of 10 so the amount of disks isn't an issue.

The disks are CD-R 700MB.

While this may be possible in theory it is not a practical option. Burn the ISO to a DVD as it was designed for.

Or create a bootable USB flash drive from the .iso.

I used Universal USB Installer Easy as 1 2 3.

Select Windows 7 from the drop down menu (all the way to the bottom).
Point to your .iso file.
Point to your flash drive.

Takes 10-20 minutes to create the flash drive which you can then use to install Windows 7 from.

Absolutely a USB Flash drive will work. That is step #2 in the Tutorial.

Ztruker is it faster or slower with a Flash drive? I have never done it with a Flash drive.

Its much faster . Think of it as an SSD hard drive what writes faster an SSD or the mechanical hard drive . DVD clean install would take like 45mins start to finish . USB flash drive 20-25 mins start to finish .

decent cheap flash drives have read speed of more than 20 MB/s with negligible seek times (downtime time between a file and another in the loading process), DVDs have a read speed of 1.4 MB/s per x1 read speed, 2.8 MB/s for x2 and so on. With horrible seek times.
