Windows 7: Installing Win 7 from ISO disk.

Installing Win 7 from ISO disk.

I spent Sunday afternoon making bootable DVDs of the Win & ISO file I downloaded. None of them worked, and I used 3 different burners. Today I was at it again with different burners and as was reading the instructions for Free Easy Burner and ran across this piece of advise.
If you have more than one DVD drive (like I do) the computer only allows for one disk drive to be booted from.
Once I inserted one the DVD from Sunday into my read only drive it booted and Win 7 started it's installation.
I will be dual booting so I want Win 7 on its' own drive and partition. Now I can unplug drive C: and load a clean Win 7.
What a learning curve this installation turned out to be. Hoping this will help someone.

John hi and welcome

Thank you for your report. It will save someone else hours of pulling their hair out. Far to many people do not report their solutions.

Again thank you
