Windows 7: Cannot re-install win 7 iso

Cannot re-install win 7 iso

My son screwed up the PC and I cannot open anything other than in safe mode. I have a legit win 7 pro copy but am missing my 32 bit disk. I burned an iso but everytime I try to install it, it gives me a message saying I don't have" enough memory for temporary Windows files". I don't really want to lose anything if I can help it. Any ideas?

Burn another DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed. Where did you get the ISO?

First try running System Restore and System File Checker in Safe mode, or from the booted DVD Repair Console or Repair CD: System Restore
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If this doesn't start it normally, boot into the DVD Repair console or Repair CD to run Startup Repair repeatedly. Startup Repair
System Recovery Options

If this doesn't solve your issue(s) then from Safe Mode try some basic troubleshooting steps to try to determine what the problem is.

If all else fails, you can copy out your files this way: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then run your Factory Recovery partition or disks, or re-install windows 7
