Windows 7: Make bootable iso from student d/l

Hi

Yeah but that's 201mb

Does this mean I have to download the thing again?

Also I heard that the W7 64 bit for 32 bit windows is available so that I don't have to make a disk, is this true?

If you already have the setup files - usually it is much quicker and easier to make an .iso.

In your case - as there seems to be a problem with the setup files extracting - it is probabaly worth downloading the iso.
MS only makes the 64 bit iso available for download.

If that's what you want - this is the procedure:

In the Web form select the Download Option in the drop down menu and include "64-bit Windows 7 Solution" in the first line of your problem description.

There wasn't a space between -bC:\Users.. and there was a space in etfsboot.com

But afterwards I get the error
Scanning Source tree

Error 3: The system cannot find the path specified.
I got the same error but fixed it by using "s.

oscdimg.exe -u2 -b"C:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" -h "C:\expandedSetup" C:\WIN7.ISO

Thanks,

I don't think adding the " made any difference in your case. The " is only needed if there is a space in the path.

As there are no spaces in the paths above - it cannot make any difference.

It is possible you just made a typo the first time around.



If you use the other location - the desktop as the source - then if your username has spaces in it - you would need to use ". That is already in the tutorial.

Oscdimg.exe –u2 –b"C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" –h "C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\expandedSetup" C:\7.iso

The " is there just in case there a space in the user name.




BTW - in the Quote above - Audio made an error - there is not supposed to be a space between -b and C:.

IF you look at the command in the tutorial, you will find it is correct.

Thanks for posting your results. Glad you are up and running

I can pretty much guarantee - your golf game is a lot better than mine.

Thank you for the wonderful guide. Still don't get why Microsoft simply couldn't have released the download in ISO format or even come up with an official fix yet.

You can now get the 64 bit iso from Dig Riv. It is a pallaver- you have to fill in problem form . At some stage you get to download it - the whole 3gb again:

If that's what you want - this is the procedure:


https://windows7.digitalriver.com/DR...=1257356288617

In the Web form select the Download Option in the drop down menu and include "64-bit Windows 7 Solution" in the first line of your problem description.

No point in going thru all that if you already have the files - easier to make your own.

If you have 32 bit files - it is a good idea to make the iso - you need a bootable installer for the future.

Glad you are up and running.
