yeah, sounds fine. on another note SIW2, make sure that people burn the iso with imgburn power iso failed at 7%. So I just restart and boot from disk now?
Yup , boot the dvd and do the install.

I burned the ISO with Nero 8...and it verified and booted fine. Do you have Nero?

Trial restrictions from their site:

Quote:
The Nero 9 trial version can be tested for 15 days starting from the date of installation.
AVCHD authoring and playback as well as MPEG-4 and BD-AV formats are not supported in the Nero 9 trial version.


Looks like it would work to me. g/l

I guess if you were really skeptical you could install it to a 10 gb drive...

Win7-HP-Retail-en-us-x64.exe
setup1.box
setup2.box

Rt click each file, Properties > Unblock>Apply>OK.
Make sure read only boxes are clear.

If you receive this error:

We are unable to create or save new files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write files and that the folder is not read-only.
Continue.


Rt click and run as admin on the .exe. You get a folder called expandedsetup with these inside:

Attachment 32380

D/L this zip, extract it and copy/move oscdimg.exe into C:\Windows\system32.

Attachment 32382

Assuming expandedsetup is on your Desktop

Open an elevated command prompt ( rt click cmd and run as admin) and type :

Oscdimg.exe –u2 –b"C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" –h "C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup" C:\7.iso


You can copy and paste the above into elevated cmd - you just need to put your username in.

Then press enter

If it's not on your desktop, replace with appropriate paths.

Tip   Tip
You may wish to copy the expandedsetup folder directly onto the root of C:

The paths will be shorter and the command will be:

Oscdimg.exe –u2 –bC:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com –h C:\expandedSetup C:\7.iso

If your folder is elsewhere, to get the paths easily, press shift and rt click on etfsboot.com -select copy as path ( paste into notepad )

Shift and rt click on expanded setup - select copy as path - paste into notepad ) Use those instead of the above.

The spacing needs to be exact.



You can burn the .iso to dvd as an image with an isoburner.

Attachment 32560

Have fun.
ok...dumb question.....where from digital river and/or microsoft was
it ever documented/mentioned that oscdimg needed to be used...!!!???

It is as I recall part of the Windows Automated Installation Kit, AND FOR
NEITHER OF THEM TO DOCUMENT THAT IT NEEDED TO BE USED IS TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL IMO....for people to have to discover the solutions on their own for a download and install like this is irresponsible!!!

OSC is just basically hacking to get a bootable image file? Yes it is irresponsible, can we please move on people?
