Windows 7: Creating a bootable win7 disk without iso with other OS

Creating a bootable win7 disk without iso with other OS

I understand that there have been raised many similar threads, but i believe that my case is yet something different.

This is my story...
It has been a while since i have downloaded the RC version of win 7 (i don't know witch exactly was..7000,7100, don't know). And somehow i have extracted the iso content to install it on a virtual machine. Now i've deleted everything and want to make a clean install of win 7. So i'm stuck with these extracted files that, normally, written on a dvd are not sufficient to boot! Or at least that's happening: it doesn't boot from the dvd.

I tried to add them again to a iso archive and then wrote them on dvd again, but in vain. The problem was still there.

I don't know what i'm doing wrong. Maybe i don't have all the files, maybe i've lost some of them. Uf, wish i didn't. Maybe you can tell me.
The files and folders that i have are: boot, efi, sources, support, upgrade, autorun.inf, bootmgr, setup.exe.

Thank you in advance !
Btw, yes bios is set to boot from the cd-drive first.
I wrote my pc specs when i registered, so i gues i don't have to write them again here... but if that's not the way to expect to be done then tell me and i'll write them explicitly here .

What did you use to burn the ISO? Something like powerISO has a checkbox to make it bootable.

No , with Brasero. But i did not see such of a checkbox there. I know that i have burned other bootable iso OS', but those where original iso archives, and they worked. Can you recommend some other disk burners for linux ubuntu till i find some on the web?

I use windows apps powerISO, ultraISO, etc. Power seems easiest to me

You can look in the tutorial sections for making a dvd bootable there is probably a tut rhere on how to. Might want to think abt powerISO though.

ImgBurn is also simple...

Yes, i'm trying it now(powerIso). I just didn't knew that wine would support it.

So, now it asks me to select the boot information source which i don't have it. Any suggestions?

Is your version of 7 64 or 32 bit?

When it asks for boot information source, you could try picking up the ETFSBOOT.COM file in the 7 files - it's in the Boot folder.

Only a few apps. can make that work.
