Can I install windows 7 with a ISO

So I've been trying like hell to install my windows 7 ultimate on to my new SSD drive (Vertex 3 120 GB) and every time it start to install it then says its having trouble installing from disk. So I made a ISO image file using DAEMONT TOOLS PRO. Can anyone tell me if I have anything here? Can I do anything with this new created ISO Image file? Thank you for taking the time to read about my problem.

You can't install from ISO. You have to burn it to DVD. Or extract it using winrar and put on usb stick (put it on primary partition which is active) and boot from it.

What porblems do you have EXACTLY when installing Windows 7?

You can install Windows from an ISO if you have a virtual CD drive. Just install like normal from within after it sets itself up it no longer needs the CD once it does the first reboot. Of course this only works if you are installing the same bit version. 32bit installer with 32bit installation is 64bit with 64bit.

Picking "Custom Install" from setup with instead a fresh clean install of Windows while moving the old install to Windows.old.

Exactly!! Thats what I was thinking from just finishing reading about virtual drives on the DAEMON Tools Pro instruction manual. So do i put the iso file on the Vir. Drive & then point my start up drive to The Vir. Drive in my BIOS? .... Thats probably like way off and retarted for even thinking that right? ...ha

You run "setup.exe" from within Windows. You don't bootup the computer. You install from within Windows.

Thank you so very much for this help man... since im trying to install it on my SSD drive, Im stumped how I do that when Im already booted up on my main C Hard drive. I guess what im asking is.. How do you pont that installation to my SSD? Thank you again.

Follow the first two tutorials to get a perfect install, then if SSD needs adjustment refer to the others.

You want a bootable installer (provided in second tutorial) for cleanest install and repairs.

You point it to your SSD by picking it in the drive list when you install Windows.
