Windows 7: How do I copy Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit DVD-ROM to a DVD+R?

How do I copy Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit DVD-ROM to a DVD+R?

I am not familiar with copying anything to a DVD.
I need to make a backup copy (exact copy) of my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit to another DVD+R.
What are the exact steps to do so? I have only 1 DVD drive. Is it possible to copy it?

Thank you for your suggestions, but I am not able to do it. I need to have super detailed instructions. When I tried to copy it, as suggested by Britton30, I never got a screen or anything to put the blank DVD+R in. Something is missing in the translation. I have rarely used the DVD or CD to record, so I do not know what to expect and when to do something.

I also tried ImgBurn as suggested by WHS. It managed to copy the BOOT, AUTORUN.INF and BOOTMGR.

The disc I am trying to duplicate has the following on it:
Folders: BOOT EFI SOURCES SUPPORT UPGRADE
Files: AUTORUN.INF BOOTMGR SETUP.EXE

Do I need to copy all of these or do something else? It is actually for Windows 7 Ultimate SP1.

I have only ONE disc left! It needs to be bootable and it is NOT rewriteable.

Please give super-detailed instructions!

Welcome to Seven Forums Mrsjefflyg.

yes you can make a copy.
1. Put the Windows 7 DVD in the drive, close the install window when it opens.
2. Open computer, right click on the Windows 7 drive. It should open a menu with options. One should be burn or copy this disk. Choose the proper one.
3. You should get prompt to insert a blank DVD in the drive.
4. The prompts will lead you through the process.

It may take a few minutes, Windows will have to copy the DVD contents to a temporary burning folder.

I would use ImgBurn and create an image file in some folder from the DVD and then burn that image file (also with ImgBurn) to the other DVD,

Just copy the files from dvd isn't enough! You have to copy the bootsector as well. Use imgburn (free)

Hi Mrsjefflyg,

Alternatively, you can download the official ISO image of Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) from one of the direct-download links here (Ctrl+F to search for English).

Put simply, you can consider an ISO image like a "virtual copy" of a DVD, which you can burn to an actual DVD. This is pretty much the physical DVD you buy, just in digital format.

You can then burn the downloaded ISO image using any free image burner. One with an easy interface is InfraRecorder.



"Write Image" should do the trick.

Additional Tips:
1) Keep the ISO file in your computer, just in case you lose your install discs.
2) Save your product key in a text document.

Hey, I like this new girl, she knows her stuff, excellent advice Kathy

@ Mrsjefflyg

Is your dvd drive a dvd burner ?

Personally I use PowerIso, but it`s not free, I just put my windows dvd in, open up Computer, right click on the Windows dvd , click PowerIso from the drop down menu and choose Make Image File

ImgBurn or InfraRecorder may work the same way. Or just use it`s GUI as suggested.

Hi Kathy, I saw you on other threads as well.... trying to help people now? I hope they appreciate your help.

But in Windows 7: right click ISO->open with->Windows 7 DVD burning. If ISO extension is associated to Windows 7 DVD burning (the default application).... double click will start the burning.

Hi Kaktussoft,

Most of my own questions deal with licensing, but I've been around computers for quite a while. So I help around when I can.

Thought maybe the OP can use something lightweight, should he/she decide to start having basic CD/DVD projects, apart from burning images. I use PowerISO myself.

As always, multiple methods for a task.

Thanks by the way, AddRAM.

Absolutely wrong! I have done it the way I explained, it all gets copied.
