Only a README File ?!!?

I've downloaded the official RC installation of win 7 and burned it as an Image. After burning I inserted the DVD into my sister's computer and everything looked just fine.. although when inserted to my laptop, The only file on the DVD was READ ME file which says:

"This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system
that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification."

What the hell does that suppose to mean ?

PS: Running 7077 build at the moment.

What program did you use to burn the ISO? I've recently used the Windows Disk Image Burner to burn my latest ISO files with no issues. WDIB is built into Windows 7 so you can right-click the file and 'Open With' then choose the program.

It might be worth trying, hope it helps

Your reader is having trouble reading UDF file systems. The readme you see is in the ISO section of the disk.
Though I can read mine in windows, I cant during boot. Try what it says here. It worked for me.

You may also try just putting the install files on a flash drive because it sounds like the problem is your DVD drive.

Yes I think the problem is in the DVD drive because before this attempt I have tried to boot from a DVD which i burned on a 7077 build win 7. The error was not the exact same but still on other pc's it worked great.
The thing is I don't have a disk-on-key...That is why i have to find a way to burn this image so it will be like an original windows disk, one which I will be able to boot from.
Bottom line..I think ill just open the image with daemon tools and copy all the files inside it to a DVD and burn using the "Make Data DVD" function of Nero and hope for the best..

That link gave you has another link that shows you how to make a CD act as a floppy.

As for who uses floppy these days. Those that can I guess. It's an invaluable tool for doing stuff outside of Windows without jumping through hoops to make something bootable.
