install Windows 7 from iso

I have downloaded a Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit iso file which I want to install into a computer I just purchased yesterday. Can anyone please tell me how to burn that iso into a DVD (i mean if there is any restriction on the speed at which I should burn it) to install it and the other complications that may arise???

Thanks in advance...................

Use whichever burner program you have, if you dont have one use IMGBurn.

The Official ImgBurn Website

Burn at the lowest speed possible.

Remember to boot from the dvd to install.

No, just select the iso, then burn.

What is the source of this iso? Either the iso is bad/unbootable or the burn is bad. Download a trial version of Ultraiso and open thii iso in that. Does it say bootable at the bottom? If yes, burn using img at the lowest possible speed.

I hope you have a genuine license for win7 and are not trying to download one of those modded/preactivated iso's? If you are, you'll get no further help here.

It is a torrent download, but not pre-activated.... I bought a license key from Microsoft some days ago...
