Downloaded Windows 7 Clean Install

Hi, I downloaded windows 7 as an .exe file and want to change it to a .iso file to do a clean install. I had vista and upgraded, but been having some problems so i would like to do a clean install of windows 7. How do i changed a .exe file to a .iso file and create a boot able dvd?

Thanks

I tried the .exe file for 7 again thinking there would be a spot in there where i would be able to format hard drive, but i didnt see one. Is there one for the downloaded version?

Thanks

You have to boot from the ISO and it will give you an option.

You need to go into your BIOS and set the CD/DVD drive as first boot device.
