Windows 7: may i burn the ISO on two CDs?

That would have been a scaled down version @ only 1.3GB and the ISO is 3GB+ for x86. If i think of anything i'll let you know.

Hi tassan,

First you need to make a partition for it - 20gb minimum - more is better - format as ntfs.

Then download PowerIso - the free ( unregistered ) version is fine.

PowerISO - Create, Edit, Extract, Mount, Compress, Encrypt, Split ISO file, ISO/BIN converter, Virtual Drive, DAA

Open PowerIso, set 1 virtual drive, mount the 7 .iso.

Then click Start Orb > Computer - the new virtual drive will be there - rt click it and select "install or run program from your media".

i did as you said with a freshly downloaded .iso file which gave me this error while installing
"Windows cannot copy files required for installation. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070241"

Win7 Ultimate, x64

I don't know what resources you have available, but have you considered upgrading your hardware just a bit.

For desktop computers, how about a new internal DVD burner? One, with decent reviews can be had for $25USD (+ s/h) - - DVD-R Burner, DVD Burner, CD Burner, CD/DVD Burners, CD-R/CDRW Burner, DVD-R/DVD-RW Burners

You have a lappie? In like fashion, external USB burners can be had starting at $50USD.

Just a thought but it might be worth considering as software is getting larger and larger all the time and it may not be too much longer before getting software on CD will become difficult.

For what its worth, I suggest you go out and buy a replacement DVD drive for your CD drive and all your troubles will disappear.

There are some types of burner software that will span automatically, but I doubt your CD drive is up to that level of sophistication.
Also, Microsoft may have locked the copy style so you have to burn as one. Usually best with an ISO image.

I just installed a new DVD/cd/Blue Ray Sata drive with free software for A$63.00. It is a Pioneer, quick and trouble free and can handle 8.5 GB DL disks, R of course. Can't wait for the new R/W's to get into the shops.
