Windows 7: How to create 1.Iso image 2.transfer it to another HDD 3.create an OS

09 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
How to create 1.Iso image 2.transfer it to another HDD 3.create an OS

1. How to download in Windows 7 from Internet to a DVD to create an ISO image?
2. If the ISO image is larger than the full capacity of one DVD how do I create the full image?
3. Once I create the full image on one (or more) DVD , how do I transfer the ISO image to another HDD?
4. Can I create an ISO image directly on a 2nd HDD?
5. Can I create an ISO image of the Windows 7 OS on a second HDD?

As you may see I may be needing intensive reading on "Iso Image creation for Dummies".

I would appreciate any help pointing me into the right direction.

From what I read I am very confused. I have tried to create an ISO image for a few months and i haven not been able to do it.

Special note:
6. How could I copy the Win 7 OS into an ISO image on one or more DVDs?
6.1 What size is Windows 7 Home Premium OS?
6.2 Which partition does Windows 7 store the OS in?
a. "Recovery" ?
b. FAT32 ?

I would appreciate step by step instructions on how to create the ISO image, how to install it, and how to make sure that the "image" could be used to fo make a backup of my HDDs and also how to use the backup to fix the computer should a fatal crash prevented from booting up Windows 7?

I use only DVDs, mostly re-writables. Which is the best free Image Burn Software that does work with DVD's.(as I dont use CD's anymore)

Thank you kindly.

This should answer most of your questions,

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Step 1 gives you a link to download the ISO file.

The 64bit Home Premium ISO is 3.09 Gb, can easily fit on one DVD.

Since you are downloading the ISO you don't have to worry about making one.

Step 2 has a link to a tool to burn the ISO to a DVD.

Any other questions, feel free to ask.
