Windows 7: Problems with the bootable dvd

Problems with the bootable dvd

Hello people!
Thanks to siw I managed to make a bootable dvd.
I run it as I suppose to do it but after I chose install an error appears saying that the drives or drivers for the installation cant be found and that I shall find them for proceeding.

Is that a problem of my dvd or I do something wrong?
Moreover I saw in another threat that I can create a bootable flash drive
I downloaded the programme that does this job but it says that the selected file is not a valid iso file.

I am waiting for your suggestions and advices
Thanks a lot

You would need to post a screenshot or some information on the error(s) being seen there to be more specific. Are you booting from the dvd or running setup while booted in Windows?

Which program did you download for writing to the flash drive? The MS usb tool or another like UltraISO's shareware version?

Let's make sure you have a bootable DVD. At the same time, we will verify that the ISO is bootable, too.

Install ImgBurn which I have uploaded for you here:

Click Verify Disk. Now click the file folder icon and load the ISO file you have downloaded. It should say "bootable" in the text at the left.

Now insert the DVD you burned, and click the Verify button to verify the DVD against the ISO.

If the DVD does not verify, insert another DVD and Burn Image File to Disk at 4x speed with Verify.

If the ISO does not show "bootable" in the text at the left, try to find the ISO file by rightclicking it and looking for file type in Properties. You may need to download the file again.
