    Hello swede1, welcome to Se7en Forums!

    Are you sure the "7000" you got is an ISO?

    When you say "bootable", do you mean exactly that, or readable/useable?

    Looks like you have been burning the ISO straight to disk in file format rather then expanding the files on to the disk, which I made the mistake of doing as well the first time.

    I used PowerISO, just click open and then select the ISO image then click on burn, job done.

    If your using Windows 7 there is no need for 3rd party tools as it natively supports ISO burning by just right clicking the ISO and selecting burn.
