I've never heard of the Win7 ISO being burned to disk using Linux tools which are not at all optimal for Win7.

Other tips here to get and keep a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 with the tools which work best.
Thanks for the quick response.

Yea the only reason i burned it on my linux machine is because the burner on my Win7 Desktop machine died. I was able to boot to the disc and everything. So all seemed well until that error came up.

Also, changing the name of the file from "X17-59465.iso" to "Win7ULTx63OEM" (To better organize my files) shouldn't cause any problems, right?

It requires a special tool to assuredly burn the large Win7 ISO. Use ImgBurn or the MS tool provided.

Name change shouldn't matter.

OK awesome. Yea i usually use ImgBurn (That software rocks) but i don't understand why this Linux burner software would cause a problem... At the least it's created the disc so that i can boot to it...so it works somewhat...

ImgBurn will be tried as soon as i get home and install my new Burner.

Also, do you know if that error is referring to the driver's needed for the DVD player/burner or the HDD itself?

The error is a bad installer.

That's a great answer but we're looking for fixes here.

Are you saying that we re-download the ISO image? Because i'm already doing that once i get to the house. And i'll be sure to post the results.

Thanks guys. i downloaded another copy and will use imgburn (which is what i've always used in the past to burn and have had absolutely zero issue) and let you guys know.

Also...I wonder if imgburn could be succesfully used via WINE on Kali ... i guess that a question for an entirely different forum site though.

You guys are great! Thanks for the answers! Whenever i find time i'll see if i can't find some (easy) ones that i can answer
