You're working on win7 now as well? Then download the ISO file rightclick on it, "open with" then "windows burning" or something like that

Windows 7

Ok I have the iso file burnt onto a DVD but i'm still struggling to get it working. I have gone to the boot menu after pressing f2 and moved the USB CD/DVD option to 1 in the priority. I then exit and try to launch startup repair but I still get no results. I did download and burn the file on a mac but nothing on the file was changed so I assume that doesn't matter when trying to open it on a pc. I do also have the file on an external hard drive so I don't know if I might be able to try and open it from there?

Does it boot from DVD? Please be more precise what happens. If it doesn't boot at all, take a look at the contents of DVD. Only one file (the ISO) on DVD? That's not correct!! Select "burn image" or something like that in burning program
