Help with installing Win 7 to blank DVD



I'm not sure which file to burn? Would it be 7264--Disc image at the full file size?

If I click on that file this pops up:


I'm not sure if I can save it to the dvd like that? I saw on another forum someone mentioned imgburn.com and to make sure you burn it as a [bootable image] or else it won't work/boot.

Do I need this IMGBurn program or can I use what Win 7 popped up? Also Is there a certain speed you have to burn it to?

Yes that should work. Windows 7 can now burn ISO images files so you can use that. Default options for burn speed should work ok but a slower speed should give a slightly better burn quality.

Your first image shot is intresting as you seam to have an ISO image file mixed in with what appaers to be a an expanded disk image.

Back in the day when iused dvd's (i use a usb now) i use the same default windows burner you're showing there. I didn't have a problem in the world with it.
You don't need imgburn.
When that pop up comes up make sure you have a blank dvd in the drive, check the verify box, and then click burn.
Good to go

It it doesn't give you an option just click burn. Ticking the verify box is always a good idea so it checks the disk after burning.

I don't think you can with the default windows burner. Just hit verify and burn and you're good to go. Do you have an extra 4 gig usb stick lying around by chance?

Got it. Thanks all.

I did have like 2 versions of 7 installed, and I was able to get some blank DVDs today..needed to install it by DVD so I could delete the partitions off and do a clean install.

17GBs used by Win 7 64bit ..anyone know how much Vista 64bit uses? Or Win 7 32bit?
