I can't get windows 7 to boot

I have downloaded from here LINKS REMOVED and followed this tutorial YouTube - Make a Bootable Windows 7 DVD but I seem to be missing the bif file can anyone tell me where to get it or tell me what I am doing wrong. I have used ultra iso, nero, and img burn just there and got failure on the burn. it was probably because i burnt at maximum with img burn i, all the other ones i bunt at 4x speed. But correct me if i am wrong i am using winrar to extract to folder all succesfull as i have downloaded 3 iso's now is it the bif file i need to make it bootable and if so where can i get it.

You're extracting the ISOs? Try using your burning program to burn the ISO to the disc

Tried that as well does it succesfully then when i reinsert the dvd i get what do you want to do with blank discs. Also in that youtube tutorial it has a bif file when you go to load bootable in ultra iso it has a bif file, in my boot folder i have a bootfix BIN file no bif file anywhere. Doing my head in

Hello.


You may have a bad ISO and need to find another; forum rules prohibit the posting of download links so we can't help with that.

Sorry i was under the impresssion that windows released the links because of digital downloads and people not having bootable DVD of the software. Won't happen again sorry.

I wouldn't post anything like that the iso downloads i posted requires you still to put in product key so I don't see how they are illegal or Microsoft would take them down theirself but I have obviously missed something. Thank you won't do it again. I see it now sorry
