But when I hit enter, I get this:
ERROR:Unable to create file "C:\7.iso"
Error5: Acess is denied.

Did I do something wrong?
I'm getting the same message, although I've come a long way from earlier - ta for the info folks!

Anybody have any idea what could be wrong here?

I have tried out the exact process you explained. The only problem is that when I type in the command for XP (I have 32-bit) nothing happens. What could be the problem??

Did you run the Command Prompt as an Administrator?

Elite,

Does your command prompt open at C:\Windows\System32>

try this command and see what you get:

oscdimg /help

then press enter

The text at the top of the window says C:\windows\system32\command.com

each Command line starts with C:\docume~1\pcuser~1>

oh and when I type that in, nothing happens.

This is soooo frustrating

I have spent much of the past 24 hours trying to get this thing to work, including about 5 hours with two separate Microsoft tech support guys in India (useless!).

The initial download worked: I got the three files (the two setup boxes and the Win7...64 unloader. I have run the the unloader countless times on three different WinXP machines, but each time I get the "We are unable to create or save new files..." error. This happens irrespective of whether the files are on the desktop or in another folder. When I check the properties, the folder invariably comes up with the read-only check box solid green. I uncheck it and close the properties dialog, but when I reopen it, the darn check box is green again!

Now I know the first step in this tutorial says I should "unblock" each file before running the unloader, but this option does not show up when I bring up the properties. I assume "unblocking" is something specific to Vista. Right?

So anyway, I do get the setup folder created (despite the error), but when I dblclk the setup.exe I am told that it can't run because it is a 64-bit program and I'm in 32-bit WinXP. OK, no need to panic, right? After all, that is why this tutorial has been created.

I downloaded the oscdimg.exe and put it in C:\Windows\system32. I moved the expandedSetup folder into the root directory (C), fired up cmd, CD\ to have the prompt at C: and pasted in the following string

bC:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\expandedSetup C:\Windows7.iso

Upon hitting ENTER, DOS tells me that The file name, directory name, or Volume label syntax is incorrect.

Now what?!

I know $30 is not much, but wasting all this time on something that should have taken no more than an hour is unforgivable!

The command prompt needs to be pointing at the location of oscdimg.exe , which is C:\Windows\System32.

you also need to specify oscdimg.exe in the command, like this:

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

My command window looks like this:


C:\Windows\System32>Oscdimg.exe –u2 –bC:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com –h C:\expandedSetup C:\7.iso
