Windows 7: How can I make my W7 disk bootable?

How can I make my W7 disk bootable?

Fellow WinSevians,
I come with cap in hand and head bowed in shame at this, my first post - after so many months reading the knowledge that so many of you seem to have.

I seek your help if you would please. After downloading at 45k all day what I believed (and still believe to be!) was the iso image of the RC, I (merely?) have the RC content that I need to create a bootable disc.

I have used Bart's BBIE to extract a boot image file from my previous W7_7068 disc and I now have 'image1.bin' at 2k.
But from here? - How and where do I merge this bin file with my W7_RC content? (I'm using 'CDBurnerXP').

Call me a 'noob'or call me a 'knob', either way I'll cop it sweet.
Thanks in anticipation.
Brinkerz.

Well, I'm probably just an idiot, but why don't you use one of the free image burning apps (I like InfraRecorder portable version myself) to write your RC iso to a DVD and boot from that?

Thanks for the suggestion but I've got the iso burning tool - just not the iso itself.

If you are using windows 7_7068 I believe that you can just right click on your ISO file that you downloaded all day at 45k and click on burn iso?

If I downloaded all day thinking I was getting an ISO image, then an ISO image is what I should have gotten. My first thought here is that you've gotten a hold of something that isn't going to work.

The true RC ISO image is out there and easily downloaded and it will properly burn to disc. Instead of trying workarounds to make something work that SEEMS to have been tampered with, why not just look for the right file?
