Go back to Golden's post #4 and once you have the .iso file, do the operation that is above the red box he marked.

SIW2 - I am trying to copy the .iso to a DVD+R.
All other replies to the thread:
My DVD is RW: TSSTcorp - CDDVDW TS-L633C ATA
Right now, I am using the 9th disc. I have 2 left. Reminder - these are NOT RW.

Thats exactly what you want to be doing, using it by....writing the ISO image to a DVD, thereby making it bootable.

I have had bad luck with DVD+R discs, DVD-R always work great for me.

This is going to sound stupid, but, Golden, what do you mean by, "Thats exactly what you want to be doing, using it by....writing the ISO image to a DVD, thereby making it bootable.". How does writing the ISO file to the DVD make it bootable?

I don't really know the difference between all the different CDs and DVDs, but I do have a huge stack of Memorex CD-R. I just don't understand how to use them since they're not formatted either. I don't get the instructions from Windows. How do I format and copy stuff to the discs? In this thread, it seems people only understand ISO. This is too foreign.
I thought about using XCOPY in DOS - yeah, I know how to do that (not showing my age, right?).

Your'e trying to create a bootable copy of the Windows 7 installation DVD. To do this you must:

1. Extract the contents of the DVD to an ISO -- you've done that now
2. Write the ISO to a blank DVD using software (plenty already recommended)

Once that is done, you have a bootable copy of your Windows 7 DVD.

If you like, use this option in IMGBURN to write the ISO to a blank DVD:

Thank you, please excuse me while I make sure the disc is going to work. I'll back to all of you later.

Win7 is to large to fit on a CD, so you must use a DVD or USB Flash drive (4gb or Larger)

Please read this again and give me more detailed instructions. It is appreciated - I am trying, but I am running out of 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 tried ImgBurn as suggested by WHS. It managed to copy the BOOT, AUTORUN.INF and BOOTMGR.

I then tried PowerISO from SWI2's instructions. This did not work either. I put the blank DVD+R disc and it cannot read it.

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.

My DVD+R must end up being bootable. The disc is NOT rewriteable - it's one-time only.

Please give super-detailed instructions!
Hi Mrsjefflyg,

If you are having much trouble doing on-the-fly burning from source disc (your OS disc) to destination disc (your blank DVD+R), it is strongly suggested that you try the method below (as posted several times already):

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

In this method, you just have to download the official ISO from Microsoft (which is essentially your physical disc) and burn that ISO to your DVD+R.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1-U ISO x64 (Media Refresh)
File Name: en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso
SHA1: 36AE90DEFBAD9D9539E649B193AE573B77A71C83
ISO/CRC: 992B8FCD
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59465.iso

1) Download ISO (right-click, Save Link As).
2) Download and install InfraRecorder or use ImgBurn (since you already have it).
3) Mount blank DVD+R to your computer's DVD drive.
4) Run InfraRecorder or ImgBurn and click "Write Image" or "Write image file to disc".

Should it ask you to locate the ISO file, just browse where you downloaded it.
Set your destination to your DVD drive and start burning.

Please report back if you have tried this method.
