Is there something wrong with the file? or maybe I need to use a different application to create the bootable cd from the ISO

Hello Nate, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you use this to create the USB with?

Boot partition manager from USB Flash disk directly to manage disk partition - Partition Wizard Bootable Flash Drive.

no i used this Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to manage partition directly with partition manager bootable CD. and i realise i can only create a Bootable CD with that...but my issue is that Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool gives me an error in the first step with the ISO file before i get a chance to choose between CD AND USB. My issue is that it keeps giving me and invalid ISO file error, irrespective of whether its CD or USB.

Mmm. Im not sure .... I always thought it was free.

Nevermind, use FREE YUMI to write the ISO to a flash drive and make it bootable. That definitely works. Use the "Unlisted ISO" option of YUMI.

Perhaps its best if you post a screen capture image of the existing partitions before you start?

I don't understand why, in method 2, I wouldn't just start at 3) without downloading the tool. Let's say I want to make a separate drive to store restore points from C: (the boot drive) because I keep getting volsnap error 25 and deletion of all points. I have a systems drive, C: and D: (recovery). Why not just shrink C: and create a separate drive to store restore points that way? Not that I quite understand how to move where I store them yet but I'm reading up on it. Just wondering.

Hello pxfragonard,

I'm afraid that restore points can only be stored on the drive letter they are for.
