Unfortunately not, the best option is to extract the files to your HD & do an upgrade or to an external source (HD or flash drive) and clean install from there.

This tutorial Install Windows 7 FAST without a DVD or USB device may also help you.

i don't care about the number of CDs - but the problem is will it resume after one CD is done?

It won't resume, when burning it will assume you are going to use a 5.4GB dvd +/-R so wont allow for spanning. I don't know if there are apps available that will do the spanning but it might be worth BINGing 'ISO spanning' or similar.

There is a way to do it on2 cd's but its kind of complicated. what about running it from a USB thumb edrive?

i googled if i can do it but to no avail the answer to the question every where was "You can divide the contents relatively easily, but the problem is that the Windows installer will still expect all of the files to be present on one disc, something you can not change. As a result, it will search for a file, not find it, and error out instead of prompting you to install Disc 2."

along with that i also read somewhere that when vista was finally released they released it in cds too so ppl with CD-ROM could get it as well so it might happen the same with windows 7.
