Hi artinusa,

Windows 7 any version would range from a 2-3 GB and a CD consist of 700 mb disc space only. So technically it is impossible to do the same until you find a way to split the file in parts.

And even if you do the same then also it would take 3-4 CDs for one windows install which won't be worthwhile.

Best would be to use couple of bootable pen drives and then you use them to install the Windows on any number of system.

Check this link on how you can create a bootable USB drive easily:

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Another possibility is to pick up an external DVD drive and take it with you as needed. Flash drive is better (and faster) though.

Are you sure these computers can handle Windows 7? Best to run Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor first.

They are going to need Valid COA-Key Codes for each version of win7 that they want to upgrade/install.
