Use ImgBurn, and then choose a slow speed and make sure verify is ticked:

The Official ImgBurn Website

It should just burn straight to disc if you downloaded an iso.

Hi fz
Yes i have now burned the disc using imageburn.Properties shows GRMCPRXFRER_EN_DVD.I may have been using image burn incorrectly...Do i have to install the image files first i.e( sperr32.exe) then the windows 7 files or do i have to put all the files on one disc?

Thanks

Hi Bob! Your burning seems to be correct from the disc name. Place it in your dvd drive. If it shows a software icon insted of a disc icon, you would be sure about it.

Boot from dvd drive, and go for a clean installation; but dont forget to backup your vista drive as SIW2 adviced.

The only file involved in burning an ISO to DVD is the .ISO file. Nothing else is done with files.

Select Burn Image File to Disk in ImgBurn, load the .ISO file in, place a new DVD in the drive, select 4x speed and tick Verify. Then burn.

Now boot from DVD: Boot from CD - How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD - Boot to CD

Thanks tepid for that i wish i could have found that sooner...one more question...I assume that after running the boot disc it then picks up the windows7 information on my drive already.
so in theory i could make a full install disc by putting the boot info and windows 7 files on on dvd.Would this work?

If I understand the question.....

No. That will not work.

If you mean taking the existing installation and transferring it to DVD? No, that will not work.
