I dont think the DVD is the problem as i put it into my mac and it shows the 2.36GB that the windows 7 .iso file is supposed to be...But intrestring enough it doesn't show in vista and everytime i click on the dvd the computer freezes up.
Also i tried a dvd earlier and it booted up but it didnt work (i didnt realize that the dvd was only 702mb
Any help? Suggestions?
Thanks guys, appreciate any help.
Ask for any specs you guys need
Download ImgBurn, and use that, with 'Verify' checked. http://www.imgburn.com/
Also, you must
use "Write IMAGE
file" in whatever burn-program you use.
(Top-Left in Doc's pic.)
The fact that Vista freezes up would indicate to me, a bad DVD, for one reason or another: Hidden boot sector, boot catalog, whatever...
Lastly, simple DVDs
are on the order of about 4.6 GIGAbytes.
are around 640-700 MEGAbytes, so you may have a misunderstanding there.
On a personal note, I avoid all Sony magnetic media.
Your BIOS must be set to boot FIRST
