It has been posted several times on this thread already.

Not everyone wants to d/l a big .iso if they already have the files.

It only takes a couple of mins. to make the .iso if you have the files.

Also - if you want to create a dvd from which you can install any Edition - you need to make the .iso after doing the edit.

I would like to buy another key for Win7 64 but Digital River only allows one download. They will let me download the 32 bit version, I was wondering if the 32 bit key will allow me to install and activate the 64 bit version. Are the keys specific for each version or are they generic.

I believe the key will work on either version as long as you're only running it on one system (32bit or 64bit). It was confirmed by a poster on this site who attempted both on his laptop.

Yes, Pestul is right - the key is not specific to the bit version.

If you have a "32 bit key" and want to make or d/l the 64 bit .iso - go ahead.

My brother-in-law is trying to get a copy now and they haven't sent him an email for the store (his address was verified). He tried resend 3 times and nothing. Is it just delayed or something? When I got mine on the 22nd it was pretty much instantaneous. I should tell him to call DR support I guess.

EDIT: Yeah, this is not really an appropriate question for this thread, nm.

A copy of the files/iso, or a key?

I tried doing this on Windows XP 32 Bit Home Edition and successfully created the DVD.

After booting from the CD and getting into the installation I got this error.

Install
Windows could not collect information for [OSImage] since the specified image file [install.wim] does not exist.

And could not go any ferther.
As of right now im attempting to create the DVD on another one of my computers running with Vista 32bit

That could be a bad burn.

If the .iso is about 2.5 gb or 3gb ( for 64bit) - install.wim has to be in there - that accounts for most of the size.

Try the isoburner from the tutorial page and burn at 4x.

If you want to recreate the .iso - you may find this easier - it will also burn it for you:

Bootable ISO - Create from Installation Files

Hope it helps

I made the .iso file however it's only 205mb.

Is this right because the original download was 3gb?

Hi,

No, that's too small.

Did you run the .exe you downloaded and get a folder called expandedSetup on your Dektop?

That expandedSetup folder should be about 3.0gb.
