Loco Metal Head,

That sounds right to me. I have not used Active ISO though, so you might try ImgBurn to burn the ISO image file with as a test to see if that may the problem. Be sure to burn it with a slow burn speed.

Even easier is to use Alex Feinman's ISO Recorder v3 - which he has updated for Windows 7. It adds a context menu item that let's you find the .ISO and right click it and burn it to DVD - no fuss.

The app also has the ability to copy from one disc to another *and* to make those wonderful ISOs on your own of any other discs you might want to....

Of course though, Windows 7 already has a built-in ISO burner that you can use to.

Burn Disc Image - ISO or IMG file
Yea, I would use the one that is already there but I can't use my desktop to burn the cd cause it doesn't have a dvd burner. But for Imgburn do I have to write the img over and then write the files on the cd seperately? That is what is kind of confusing me.

You know you don't have to boot to the disc in order to install it, unless you want to change the partition etc... You can install a clean installation from inside of windows and still have it work correctly...

This may help some more:

When you run ImgBurn, you would select the Write image file to disc option.

After that, click on the folder and navigate to where you have the ISO file saved to, and select it. Put a blank (unformated) DVD in the DVD drive, then click on the file/disc icon boxed in red on the bottom of the image below when it is no longer grayed out to start burning the ISO file to the DVD.
