Burning Windows 7 Installation file to disc?

How do I do this? I'm curious so that I can buy and download windows 7 to run bootcamp instead of having to go to the store.

You can also buy a Windows 7 DVD with your order.

Thankyou, also, at the download screen it says download .iso or .exe, which one should I choose?

Hello cole32547, welcome to Seven Forums!


So you will have a bootable DVD for installation you will need the ISO file.

MS has a tool for this.

The MS tool can be fussy about the ISO, which is why ImgBurn is first recommended.

If you want bootable flash stick installer and tool is not working, try Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 with Win7 in the dropdown menu.

If you wont to reuse the USB Pendrive, use Method two in this tutorial:

Theog -

I rewrite and even carry all my tools on a stick that is formatted as bootable installer using the Linux tool. Why do you say it can't be reused?

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't removing bootsect /nt60 code by wiping any bootable drive all that's needed to make it not bootable?

I've burned three copies of 7 H/P using the MS tool, and all of them worked.

Native Windows 7 Disc Image Mount/Burning Software?
Is there? I'd like to burn a cue/bin set of files and wonder if the basic Win7 burning software will burn them properly or if I should use a 3rd party app? If the basic Win7 burning software doesn't, is there a freeware from MS for it? Thanks!
