And, Im already getting an issue with that, when choosing an iso file, I choose the Windows 7 iso file, it has a .iso ending, I open that and the tool says:
The selected file is not a valid ISO file. Please select a valid ISO file and try again.

X17-58997

When I browse for it using the USB tool, it comes up as:
C:\Users\Microsoft\Downloads\X17-58997.iso

And when I click next I get that message:
The selected file is not a valid ISO file. Please select a valid ISO file and try again.

Its 3.1Gb in size right? Try and copy the ISO to another folder, and see if the tool will pick it up then.

Guess so
That'll take a couple hours probably, I'll go get some more DVD's in the mean time

Seems like re-downloading certainly did something, it is now being copied to my USB Flash perfectly fine
