How to Create a Bootable ISO from a Student Windows 7 Download




If you get the student d/l and have 3 files :

Here's how:

1. Rt click each file, Properties > Unblock>Apply>OK.
NOTE: Make sure read only boxes are clear.

2. Rt click and run as admin on the .exe. You will get a folder called expandedsetup on your dektop with these inside:
Name:  EXPANDEDSETUPCONTENTS-2009-10-22_061340.jpg
Views: 238956
Size:  9.1 KB
Note   Note
If you receive this error:

Quote:
We are unable to create or save new files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write files and that the folder is not read-only.
Continue.


3. D/L this zip, extract it and copy/move oscdimg.exe into C:\Windows\system32.
oscdimg.zip
4. Assuming expandedsetup is on your Desktop:

Vista/7 users open an elevated command prompt ( rt click cmd and run as admin) and type :

Code:
 
Oscdimg.exe u2 b"C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" h "C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup" C:\7.iso

XP users commands are:

Code:
cd /d C:\windows\system32

Code:
oscdimg -u2 -b"C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" -h "C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\expandedSetup" C:\7.iso

5. You can copy and paste the above into elevated cmd.

Vista/7 users- replace your_username with your actual username.

XP users - replace USER with your actual username

6. Then press enter. Xp users press enter after each of their two commands.

7. If the expandedsetup folder is not on your desktop, replace with appropriate paths.

Tip   Tip
You may wish to copy the expandedsetup folder directly onto the root of C:

The paths will be shorter and the command will be:

Code:
Oscdimg.exe u2 bC:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com h C:\expandedSetup C:\7.iso
If your folder is elsewhere, to get the paths easily, press shift and rt click on etfsboot.com - select copy as path ( paste into notepad )

Shift and rt click on expanded setup - select copy as path - paste into notepad ) Use those instead of the above.

The spacing needs to be exact.
warning   Warning
When the .iso is created you will get this message:

WARNING: This image contains UDF file system structures.

That is normal as you are creating the udf filesystem.


8. A) You can burn the .iso to dvd as an image with an isoburner.
isoburner.zip
OR

B) You can use the Microsoft DVD/USB tool to burn the .iso to dvd or to use the .iso to make a bootable flash drive. Download the tool:
Windows7-USB-DVD-tool.exe
Tip   Tip
To make a copy of your Windows 7 ISO file:

1. Click the Start button, and click Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool in the All Programs list to open the USB/DVD Download tool.
2. Click Browse and select the file in the Open dialog box.
3. Select USB to create a copy on a USB flash drive or DVD to create a copy on a DVD disk, then click Next.
4. If you are copying the file to a USB flash drive, select your USB device in the dropdown list and click Begin copying. If you are copying the file up to a DVD, click Begin burning.

Quick question I am in Vista, I right clicked on all of the files downloaded and selected properties. In the new window there is no unblock, also all of the read-only checkboxes are already unchecked.

I don't think you need to do that on XP - try just running the .exe and see.

I'm currently getting an error. I've corrected the mistakes in the above code lines

Should be Oscdimg.exe u2 b C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com h C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup C:\7.iso

There wasn't a space between -bC:\Users.. and there was a space in etfsboot.com

But afterwards I get the error
Scanning Source tree
ERROR: Failure enumerating files in directory "C:\USERS\*MYUSERNAME*\uU2\" (On the lower case u there is a ^ above it)
Error 3: The system cannot find the path specified.

Short Preface: I have tried to "unpackage to both my M: drive and my desktop

Ok so i Rt clicked on the folder and ran it as admin - I get the Unloading Box Progress bar:

When it reaches the end of the progress bar I haer a error bell and this prompt appears on the screen:

We are unable to create or save new files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write files and that the folder is not read-only.

Is that normal?

So after the cmd prompt, I can save it to a dvd-r as an .iso? Thanks and sorry for not being so tech-savvy.

My mistake there is suppose to be no space between -bC:\User

Just there is suppose to be no space in etfsboot.com

I end up making my own line to use

oscdimg -bC:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\ C:\7.iso

That worked for me
