If you downloaded the .iso file, Just Burn it to DVD with ImgBurn (Freeware) at 4x speed with verify ON !

If you set the computer to Boot Up from the DVD optical drive, It should boot the burned DVD as a Windows 7 Installation Disc, ready to start the install process. Have you backed up your current files & data, etc ?

Doc has already shown it in the screenshot in post #2.

Have you installed ImgBurn?

Insert a blank DVD into your optical drive. Right click on the Windows 7 ISO, In the Menu click on Burn using ImgBurn. It will start ImgBurn.

Uncheck Test Mode (if checked), Check mark Verify, select Write Speed - the lower the better - and click on the Burn icon.

You can also use the Windows native image burner.

When you right click on the ISO, click on Burn disc image. In the native image burner window, check Verify disc after burning and click on Burn. ( You have no option to select the write speed.)

Next, are you sure you want to burn the image to DVD?

Even if your answer is yes, I would recommend you write the ISO to a pendrive and make a bootable pendrive. You can boot with the pendrive and check whether it works. This will confirm your ISO is good.

Then you can write it to a DVD if you want to have a hard copy..
