There isn't a different one you have to use that for windows.

Did you have a look in Bios and see if the disk controller can be set to ide - anything that avoids ahci - probably is already - worth a look.

Hi wrobster,

You might give this a try:

oscdimg.exe -h -j1 -b"C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" -m "C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup" C:\7.iso

If you are still having issues creating the ISO, I suggest checking out this thread:

Thank you Scubasteve,

Wrobstser's iso needs to be bootable on an old machine that doesn't handle UDF.

Also, that link is only for 64 bit.

Anyone who has 32 bit install files would be smart to make a bootable .iso


There is another method some will find much easier here:

Correct...but Digital River actually has links for 32 bit and 64 bit home and pro. You can request whatever version that you purchased.

Some folks have already guessed the other three links since the name of the ISOs for the other three versions is fairly well known...and even documented in the (hidden) Gizmodo comments. View the story and click the "Show hidden threads" link.


BTW, I downloaded the 64 bit Pro ISO from Digital River and it mounts fine. Of course, the great instructions here already helped me make an ISO from the files that I originally downloaded from DR...so thanks!

Everybody really should have an .iso

If you already downloaded the student files - you can make one easily.

Use this tutorial if you are happy with making a command.

OR

Use this if you want a very easy way that takes 5 mins:

Bootable ISO - Create from Installation Files





OR

You can download the .iso - takes a long time and about 2.5 -3 gb bandwidth:
