Hi Zi,

We've had nearly 100,000 views - so a few having difficulty is no surprise.

Also - now shadow and the others know a litle about how to use cmd.

vlite is easy for this of course - I already did a screenshot run thru for that.

LOL.

Now burn it to dvd as an image . Do not format the dvd. isoburner is attached to the bottom of the tutorial if you need it. Don't burn it too fast - 4x maybe.

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!
I am in the same boat as this guy. The unload step seems to have problems. I hope some one can figure this out soon

Success! Thanks, SIW!!!

I got Win 7 Pro 64-bt running on my Latitude D620, even though the MSFT tech from India told me it would not work. I guess he was giving up after 3 hours on the phone with me (what morons they have there, unbelievable!) and this was the way of getting me off his back (claiming all my problems were due to getting the wrong version).

Now I have an interesting question. When prompted for the key, I did not enter it and clicked next. The installation continued and everything seems to be working just fine, with no sign of a nag message telling me I have so many days to activate. I checked in the Windows toolbar and there is no activation icon anywhere. Does this mean I'm good to go, i.e. can I install on another computer without running into activation problems?

You're welcome,

As long as you do not enter your key - you have a 30 day trial period.

You can use your key either on that machine, or another machine. Not on both.

The actual dvd can be used on an infinite number of machines - if no key is entered they will run for the trial period. If you enter a different valid key on each those machines they will activate fine.

It is possible to extend the trial period to a maximum of 120 days. After that - you would need to reinstall to get another 30 days, etc.

I assume you don't have a copy of the installation files you downloaded?

Not sure what you mean by still have your old files.

Best to use those or d/l them again.

I did not have the option of a clean install so i have the windows.old folder along with some other junk in the drive root directory that made it past the upgrade but didnt get sorted into windows.old. So yes i do have the original install but clearly my win32 directory will be different now, i asssuemd making a boot iso would be different at this point.
