It might be because you need to run the command line as an administrator.

You can also choose to buy Windows 7 Professional Upgrade for 30, however this may require you to perform a clean install. Please refer to the FAQ's. for more details.

which implies you can ???
I spoke to Microsoft support earlier. It seems they're not quite up to date with this 'student' downloadable version of Windows 7, and more familiar with anything purchased through the official MS Shop (as opposed to Digital River).

And I think their interpretation of 'perform a clean install' literally just means select the option to do a clean install during the UPGRADE. I don't think this means booting from a DVD image to install on a new hard disk.

So I guess this means spending another '39 minutes' installing XP onto a new hard disk just so that I can perform the Windows 7 upgrade.

Oh, and my advice for anyone still struggling with creating an ISO image,
carefully read the first thread in this topic and don't skip anything - but if you have problems with running oscdimg.exe it's porbably just related to incorrect filepaths, so try the following to simplify things:

Download the OS files (setup1.box setup2.box & Win7-P-Retail-en-us-x86.exe) double click on the .exe and wait for the expandedSetup directory to be created. Then cut and paste this into C:\ and also cut and paste oscdimg.exe into C:\windows\System32

Then follow the command as shown in the attached screen shot taken from my command prompt. If it works you should get the same confirmation, and a new file called '7.iso' will be in C:\ about 2.5GB in size.

I then used Roxio Media Creator 9 and selected 'Burn Image to Disc' and selected this 7.iso file. This gave me a nice bootable DVD.
I have this same screen, but I can't find the ISO. Seriously, after all that and then I find that there is no ISO.... Any ideas?

Digitalriver is the online company I purchased the product from they claimed you would be able to do a clean install loosing all previous information, which Im fine with. However they sent only an exe which a 32 bit system cannot open with out a disk. To make matters worse they did not include an ISO so you could burn it to a Disk. Any solutions as to making an ISO?

I've read that running the command line as an administrator also helps with that problem too.

Thanks for the directions to making a UDF only image.
That is much more than Digital River or Microsoft has done.

My son has an older AsRock mobo (K7VT4A) with a BIOS which
does not support booting from UDF format DVDs. It gives the
beloved "Error Code 5" message when trying to read the DVD.

I understand that it is possible to create an ISO9660 / UDF image
for windows 7. One such solution can be found at:

UNAWAVE - Code 5 Error whilst booting Windows 7 DVD

How would one use the oscdimg program and the files downloaded
from Digital River to create a DVD compatible with the older BIOS?

I noticed that oscdimg.exe does have a -u1 option.

Thanks for the tutorial, I followed the directions except for my path changes, but I'm still getting an error. I type:

oscdimg.exe –u2 –bD:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com –h D:\expandedSetup C:\7.iso

Error:could not delete existing file "ubD:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot"
Error 123: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Any Ideas?
