Use the Download tool to write to DVD or flash stick.

You can also burn the DVD using Windows Image Burner which is built into Win7 and works fine. It should be there if you rightclick on the ISO.

Are you sure you completed the ISO download?

For 4gb or under I would use 32 bit which is same as 86, since some is apportioned to hardware. Otherwise 64 bit.

i have 4 gigs ram :P and I must say atm on 64bit windows computer seems slow :P are you saying 32 bit would be better? What if my computer came with 64bit would running 32bit windows change anything? or cause problems or is it just your choice? What about the apps I install? are they 64 bit only? or must I check?

I was going do 64bi?t because thats what I have though I must say its not as fast as I would like? is there a page that explains differencce

32 bit vs 64 bit Comparison - Windows 7 Forums

I would use 32 bit. Install it to see how it works. See first if your computer maker's Support Downloads web page for your model has 32 bit drivers, especially for the wireless. However most drivers are in the installer or quickly updated via Optional Windows Updates, then any that are not on the Downloads page for your model can usually be found by searching the web - and we can help you.

If 32 bit isn't better then reinstall 64 bit.
