Correction its a DVR+R. Burned at 8x. Why does it matter if I burned at lowest speeds?

Make sure you are actually burning the ISO and not just moving the ISO to the dvd. You can test this by using the DVD in your current OS and seeing is Autoplay startsup and says something about upgrading your OS.

If there was an error in burning, Magic ISO would tell me right?

Am I extracting the files into a local hardrive first or just directly extracting into a DVD+R? It seems like Magic ISO formatted the disk and then burned it.

MagicISO formatted the DVR+R and extracted the files from the ISO to the DVD+R. Is this right?

Are you trying to say that the ISO file is itself a bootable file?

When I put the DVD in, the autoplay does start and it asks me to install the OS. My problem is bootable from the disk so I can format my HD and do a clean install.

Based on what you said it seems like the DVD works. Have you tired going into your BIOS and setting your CD/DVD drive to boot priority one?

As for burning it at a lower speeds, it reduces the chances that errors will occur.

Priority is not an issue. It does try to boot from the DVD, I keep pressing F1 to retry and nothing happens.

Am I suppose to burn the ISO image itself to the DVD?

Yes, burn the entire .iso as an image, not as data.

Do not extract the files. Do not format the dvd.

Sry to hijack the thread, but I'm having the same exact problem it seems. The only difference is, I used Roxio Creator DE 10.1. I already set the CD/DVD to boot first from the BIOS. When I boot the computer, it simply starts into Vista. I downloaded the file from MS as well. I also tried to force boot DVD but i get an option to start Windows Vista and that's it.

One thing I can also remember is that I formatted the DVD before copying the .iso file onto it. I'm making another copy to see if that fixes the problem.

Okay, It's real easy. Just download ImgBurn from MajorGeeks

|MG| ImgBurn 2.4.4.0 Download

Do not extract files, Burn the .iso directly to DVD with ImgBurn. It will have the necessary boot files on the DVD in the proper place.

Insert new burned DVD in DVD drive on computer that you want to install to.

ReStart computer, select boot from CD/DVD drive or hit F8 key to get a select boot drive menu. WaLaah ! Simple

If you opened the .iso in MagicISO and told it to burn it to DVD, then it should have burned the files in the ISO to the DVD disc. To confirm this, in the DVD disc you should have 5 folders and 4 files, one of then being the setup.exe. I included a screenshot of the files in Build 7201 x64.

Also, I suggest that you make sure that the disk works and reads correctly by testing it in another computer.
