A few people are having that trouble.

Try downloading the setup files instead.

Then make your own . iso - it's free and easy :

A few people have had that too. The Microsoft tool is new and not infallible.


Use this and burn at 4x:

Hope it helps.

When you download the iso make sure you save it. Do not run it-it must be save first. Found this mistake myself

Make a boot-able DVD from student d/l
[this uses part of user SIW2's post, and notes a step from user Audio's post that worked when I created my Windows 7 boot-able DVD]

If you get the student d/l and have 3 files similar to these:

* Windows 7-HP-Retail-en-us-x64.exe
* setup1.box
* setup2.box

Here's how:
1. Download oscdimg.zip
- Go to this website:
Make bootable iso from student d/l
- Complete this step:
3. Download this zip, extract it and copy/move oscdimg.exe into C:\Windows\system32.
oscdimg.zip

2.Move the .exe and two .box files to your desktop
- the files will resemble the following [version of windows 7 doesn't matter]
* Windows 7-HP-Retail-en-us-x64.exe
* setup1.box
* setup2.box

3.Assuming your files are on your Desktop, open an elevated command prompt ( rt click cmd and run as admin) {type: cmd into the start menu "start search" area }
-if your current operating system is windows xp or earlier just go to start->run, then type cmd and hit enter

4. Type or copy then paste {right click on cmd field to paste}
- be sure to copy the user name for your computer in the USERNAME area before you type or paste the information:
oscdimg -bC:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\ C:\7.iso

5. Now, download windows 7 usb dve downloading tool
- go here: Microsoft Store: Download Manager Help
- download it under the "Installation" heading step 1

6. Install and run Windows 7 usb dve downloading tool
{this small program makes the bootable dvd from the iso in one easy step}
- the iso was created on the C: drive and is name 7.iso
- this completes the process, boot from your dvd and install windows at your convience
-- don't forget to copy your installation product key to a piece of paper or something

I tried this but used the bootloader boot.bin from vLite instead.
No luck - this time the BIOS said "boot record not found"

Hi wrobster,

Sorry, you have to use etfsboot.com.

The -j1 in the above command may do the trick - but you must use etfsboot.com.

I would do this:

1. D/l the free Macrium Reflect on your son's machine. Run off the Macrium boot cd ( Select the Linux option ) - boot the cd and check it works on his machine.

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

Macrium Reflect - Blogs and News

Macrium Reflect - Blogs and News

Macrium Reflect - Blogs and News

2. Make an image of his drive - use Normal compression and High Priority ( Macrium is Very fast). Store the image on an external HD.

3. Make a small ntfs partition on his drive ( on the extreme right) . Don't use XP Disk Management - use this - again small, fast and free:

Free Download Partition Wizard

4. Boot his machine as normal into ( I assume XP).

Put the 7 dvd in the drive.

Rt click the dvdrive and copy the contents to the new partition you made.

Install 7 by running setup from there. ( You need to have the partition you want to install 7 onto already - you don't get advanced partition options when installing by running setup like that).

5. When 7 is installed, updated and Activated - make an Image and store that on the external drive as well.

If he needs to reinstall 7 in future - put that image back on instead.

6. Good idea for him to make a new image periodically, so it is up to date.

Sorry, I havent read all 58 pages.
I have the Windows Student download and mine never came with 2 setup files. My file name is X15-65805.iso.

How do I burn this file onto USB? I'm currently using XP.

Thanks

Use an isoburner - there are plenty of free ones.

This free one is extremely reliable and very simple:

Burn to recordable dvd at 4x speed. Do not format the dvd.

Hope it helps
