OS version: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, 6.1, build: 7601 (x64)
Hardware: LIFEBOOK SH771, FUJITSU, FJNB235
CPU: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2640M CPU @ 2.80GHz
What language do you want win7? You want home premium, professional or ultimate?

-----
Don't use these:
What are E, N, K and KN editions?

Microsoft had to introduce the E and N editions to the European market and the K and KN editions to the Korean market due to anti-trust appeals. The N editions don't contain any media player software; the E editions don't contain the internet explorer; the K editions contain additional selection screens to download alternative media player and messenger software, the KN editions don't contain any media player or messenger software, or any links to alternatives.
-------------
SP1 and "media refresh" are 99.99% the same. But I prefer "media refresh"

Microsoft released updated media refresh images in May 2011. They have the post SP1 hotfix KB2534111 integrated as well. The original versions of the SP1 integrated DVDs don't allow any non ASCII characters when assigning the computer name, which has been fixed with this update.
-------

So you need: Windows 7 xxxxx x64 SP1 U (media refresh)
xxxxx=Professional, Ulimate or Home Premium... it depends what you want.
take the correct language!

Disk Missing

Hi, I tried to follow your instructions, but I do not have a Win 7 installation disk. I grabbed a DVD-R disk and tried to format it with a Windows 7 Professional SP1 U iso, but it says the disk image file is not valid. Why is it saying that, and how do I fix it? TIA.

Did you burn the ISO succesfully to DVD? Many files on that DVD now?

No, I did not successfully burn the ISO to the DVD, and it is a completely blank 4.7 GB DVD-R

Hello creat0r, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could be a bad download of the ISO file if it was interrupted while downloading.

If you like, you might see how it goes with creating a bootable USB instead.

I have tried that using a progam called rufus. I do not remember the error it gave me, but I do believe it was similar.

If you have not already, you might see if downloading a new ISO may help if you do have a corrupted ISO.

You can't install win7 onto usb! You can only install "from" usb

Oops, sorry, thats what i meant.
Anyways, the repair has completed, everything is now working as hoped, and I didn't lose any data. I cannot find the product key on my laptop however, but I can deal with a black screen for a background
Thank you all so much, it really helped and now I can get back to work on the projects that wouldn't work before.
