Windows 7: problem with reinstalling windows 7

Oh you probably have WinRAR associated with an ISO image. Crap I don't know how to undo that.

Just leave it alone after you download it. Go to ImgBurn>> Write Image File to Disc>>>Browse for file>>>Locate file>>> OPEN>>>Burn!

OK so you set it to boot from disc and it failed too boot. Then its your hardware. Sometime is not right. RAM/Hard drive/CD drive pretty much any of these.

Your not going to be able to install any OS if you can't get PC too boot. Try again, remove all but one stick or RAM. If it still fails, then test out with a different hard drive or different CD rom drive.

You got to start eliminating hardware problems, because its not normal for a PC not too boot into a simple program like CopyWipe, unless your not booting from CD or your not burning it properly.

No problem, you don't have another drive to test out.

Get one of these if its a SATA connection, cheap but VERY reliable.

That works too. I used those "Sony" Optiarc burners for years. The one I use now is 2+ years and has never failed. I don't use cheap media.

Try it, I got an LG bluray, but I never used it. Just looks pretty in my case. LOL

speaking of bluray. what is the difference between a bluray burner and a cd/dvd? im guessing just quality? or is there something special about them?
