Windows 7: Make bootable iso from student d/l

I think you are trying to run it from the dvd - instead of booting it from the dvd.

When you start the pc - you get white writing on a black screen.

It will say something like ;

F2 for setup

F11 for boot menu ( your F numbers may be different)

Press whatever F number it told you to for boot menu.

A few seconds later a menu will pop up. Arrow to cdrom drive. Put the dvd in the drive. Press Enter.

A few seconds later it asks "press any key to boot from cdrom drive". Press Enter.

Somebody had an issue with that tool and usb drive.

Or may be the dvd is duff of course.

Try burning it with the isoburner instead - select 4x as the speed.

I got the bootable disc working, so i formatted by harddrive of XP 32 Bit, managed to get Windows 7 installed, however at the end of the setup its asking for my CD-KEY / Product Key, but isn't taking it, is it not possible to install from clean or do i have to put XP 32 bit back on and "Upgrade?"

No.

Something wrong there.

Pick up the .iso with the free ( unregistered) version of PowerIso - and see if boot.wim is there. It is inside the sources folder.

Assuming it is , there is probably something wrong with the burn.

try using the isoburner on the tut page and burn at 4x.

You can either run the Win7 install again choosing the "upgrade" option or do a registry hack. Both are explained here:
