Do you have a dvd burner on that machine ?
Yep, and I'm doing it now.

Edit: When I'm formatting the USB, do I change the File System or Allocation Size?

No need to. Format only.

When you create the bootable USB with ISO file, it'll create it with the proper file system and such.

Doing what now ? Setting up the usb stick ?

No, leave those alone.

What program are you using ?

Did you check the iso file size ?

OK I put it on a USB drive.

Edit: I just drag and dropped. Do I have to follow these steps:

OK, now open my Computer on your pc, then put in the flash drive, after windows sees it, make a snip of My Computer and post it for us.

We`ll let you know if it was done right.

It should look like this. Of course your flash drive is probably a different size, but it should look the same.

No. Drag and drop will not work.

You will need to read the tutorials and do the steps in them, or they will not work mate.
