Well, I'm not going to waste away some money on DVD-RWs, way too expensive, unless a definate NEED, lol. What I did was, just to try, I extracted the ISO to my 8GB garbage HDD, that I bought for 5 dollars :P And voila! Booted up like nothing! I'm definately happy I found out that little trick, because I have a temporary IDE harddrive tray, so it's very handy. Thanks alot guys, I'll let ya know how the installation goes!

Be very careful what you are trying to do!
Attempting a hack install without a valid key will result in a permanent ban from the forum.

Oh man, sorry about that, I guess I wasn't thinking too clearly then. Well, nevertheless, NOW I have a valid 64 bit Windows 7 CD, with actual CD key, but the problem is, when I click setup.exe, it says that it's not a valid win32 operation, and when I boot it single, it comes up a blank desktop, and a cursor. Thats it. Any ideas?
