Your problem is that you do not read the postings or do not take the time to understand them.

You're missing the file bootmgr.efi from your original source (probably an x86/32 bit) For an x64 build (which is what you're running based on the VERY limited system specs you have provided ) you should use an original x64 extracted iso/DVD as the source.

I would just download a fresh ISO Windows 7 Direct Download Links and forget the copying all together.

Dear OP,

To summarize, you have 3 methods to go about your desired task:
  • Method 1 - Download ISO and burn it (recommended, step-by-step instructions already posted)
  • Method 2 - Explicitly create an exact image copy of your physical disc and burn it (recommended, instructions already posted by other members)
  • Method 3 - On-the-fly ("right off the bat") burning from disc to disc (could be troublesome for you, but possible)
Personally, I would often go with Method 1 (whenever available) or Method 2 when I back up my OS and driver discs.

Good luck to you.

Have a look here mrsjeff, ISO image - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Simply, an .iso is an image, exact copy, of the contents if a CD/DVD disk. All the files and folders are in it including the Boot parts and data. It is similar to a zipped or WinRAR files, it's compressed more though.

iso must be burned as an image, this process "unzips" the contents of the iso and makes the newly created disk bootable if the original was bootable. The iso downloads that have been mentioned ARE of the bootable variety.

An easier way, in my opinion, would be to use a USB flash drive (stick), it will operate exactly like a bootable DVD. Use method 1 here: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

The issue seems to be writing the ISO to a blank DVD....not actually getting hold of an ISO, which I think he/she has done by now (hopefully)

With the official ISO though, the OP can be assured it's working (as opposed to a possibly faulty created ISO), so it's most recommended to burn the official one to the disc.

I agree....but still....the issue seems to be the burning/writing of the ISO, not actually getting the ISO.

Lets see what he/she say when they get back.

32 bit systems do not support EFI and therefore do not contain the file bootmgr.efi ...hence when the OP attempts to boot his/her 64 bit machine with said DVD result is of course MAJOR FAIL. Of course, I'm just guessing because the OP NEVER told us of any/which error messages (if any) he/she receives, only that it "doesn't work"
