I used the Windows 7 usb/dvd download tool instead of nero or imgburn - I think it's the same thing?
i don't have a blank cd/dvd so trying to use a flashdrive
I selected the .iso file I downloaded from Download Windows 7 ISO (64-bit Windows 7 Professional x64 ISO)
and put in a blank usb device so now I see the setup.exe file for Windows 7 on the usb device
unfortunately I can't run it because I have winxp 32, i get a message saying "setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application"
I figured this meant I just needed to load it from boot menu so i selected "removable device" as the #1 boot option but when my pc boots up the usb device flashes but then pc just boots up xp as normal and i dont get an option to install Windows 7
