Windows 7: Make bootable iso from student d/l

So... I have windows xp, and I recieved the error when trying to unpack the files. I did however get the expandedsetup folder to appear on my desktop even after I recieved the error, so maybe it all unpacked fine? Can someone please confirm the size of the expandedsetup folder is 3.01 GB (3,239,963,196 bytes)?

Not everyone has the same file. There's a 32/64 versions as well as Home/Prof versions, all available via the student discount. Also, is that actual size or size on disk?

That sounds fine - go ahead.

There are only 32 or 64 bit . No such thing as Home Premium or Professional installation files - they are all the same. The key determines which Edition is installed.

Great thanks.

For the xp users, (Im using XP pro 32 bit and its working for me) I used this command prompt:

oscdimg -u2 -b"C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" -h "C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\expandedSetup" C:\7.iso

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.

Is that normal?
I got the same error at the end of the uploading box progress. I went through options and set access to my account but the problem still occurs. I've tried to do the boot, it worked, but I'm afraid there will be missing files for the setup...

I did what your instructions said. I entered the new cmd and it works. Now I'll try to burn it and let you know how it works out. Thanks!
