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

I don't see where you would set the burn speed? Whats a good burn speed?

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?

No usb sticks

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?
