Isobuster extracts a .img file - your burning app.will probably happily pick that up.

EDIT : Vlite is probably easiest method. Browse to the windows files, click Bootable .iso , create image

-bootableiso2009-03-02_005050.jpg

-create-image2009-03-02_005215.jpg




These are the hashes ( it is a Vista .iso I have used here )

With cdimage.exe ver.2.52(108 KB):

-Place your folder Windows 7 in your C:\ drive.
-Place your cdimage.exe in your C:\ drive.
-Run Command Prompt "as Administrator".
-When Command Prompt appear, type "cd\ without the quotes to change to C drive.
Type (copy/paste this) the command cdimage -m -u2 -bC:\Windows 7\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Windows 7 C:\Windows 7.iso and you will see that its creating Windows 7 ISO image.

Hi, welcome to the forums.

Yes you can, there's no tie to version numbers. The RTM if downloaded from MSDN or Technet will be bootable anyway
