Hello swede1, welcome to Se7en Forums!

Are you sure the "7000" you got is an ISO?

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

When you say "bootable", do you mean exactly that, or readable/useable?

Looks like you have been burning the ISO straight to disk in file format rather then expanding the files on to the disk, which I made the mistake of doing as well the first time.

I used PowerISO, just click open and then select the ISO image then click on burn, job done.

If your using Windows 7 there is no need for 3rd party tools as it natively supports ISO burning by just right clicking the ISO and selecting burn.
