Windows 7: Make bootable iso from student d/l

Got it to work in Windows 7

Somehow Windows didn't like the iso being written in the root folder C:\ so I just updated the cmd to write to my desktop and the file appeared.

Well I burned the ISO (got that far) but it's not bootable. It says it can't find the boot.wim file. I tried it within Vista and after a restart of the computer. I noticed that the ISO file and the disc that I burned with Nero is only 205MB though. Did I do something wrong?
you definitely did something wrong. The image file that gets created, called '7.iso' is a single file that is 3.09GB in size.
ok. Then I'm going to redownload again. Sigh....
I have the same issue and it seems that the files are not unpacking fully before getting an error message like many others are experiencing. I have downloaded the files from Digital River 7 times now just to make sure I am getting the full, uncorrupted files with no luck getting the full expandedsetup folder to make a ISO. From what I can tell we are SOL unless someone knows a way to make them fully unpack to do the work around.

Check you email. It appears that they have acknowledged the error and are doing refunds right now

Nothing as of yet, though I just want a legit ISO, or full “expandedsetup” folder so I can do the ISO work around. I will just wait for the install disk to come in the mail if I have to, to avoid paying the standard price however, I'll take a refund on the "backup" disc I initially paid for since it really isn't an optional item and is absolutely needed since the download doesn’t work and the disk cost should have been included in the 30 deal cost

You could grab a verified legit hash-checked ISO off the net and just use your key

PS Please note that this statement does not codone piracy...it just provides a method to install 7 now than later

Windows installation encountered an unexpected error

After following the above instructions to the letter, I have an ISO image. I tried to mount it using Daemon tools lite. I received the following error:

Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Verify that the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation.

Error code: 0xC0000005

Should it really make a difference whether I mount the ISO rather than burning a DVD? Could there be a problem with the ISO?

I cannot confirm nor deny that the download for that started this morning as I left for work haha. Question with that, if I were to run that ISO, install with the student key over my xp then rerun the digital river provided setup files in that 64 bit environment would I then be able to clean install/format win 7 without doing it from xp? Would the "upgrade" setup files allow for installation on an already installed win7?

My image file is 2.39GB as is the expandedSetup. I have the Pro version. Win 7 Retail exe and the two setup1.box and setup2.box amount to 2.24 GB. Where is the 3GB coming from?

64 bit is bigger.

I think you will find the student deal key is the Full version.
