Windows 7: Make bootable iso from student d/l

Windows XP 32bit PRO
 
 

May I just add that I am one of these people running 32bit XP Pro and it won't let me extract 64bit pro. I get the error about permissions. People in this thread have said to try creating the boot image regardless, but I don't have this oscdimg.exe file anywhere in the expandedSetup folder.

Any ideas?

I think you need to read more carefully. Thats an idea. oscdimg.exe was provided in OP's first post and it goes into system32 folder.

For the xp users, (Im using XP pro 32 bit and its working for me) I used this command prompt:

oscdimg -u2 -b"C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" -h "C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\expandedSetup" C:\7.iso
This created an image for me perfectly. I will try booting off it this evening

Can anybody help me out? I've tried pretty much everything & got almost every error message in the command prompt everybody else seemed to get. I'm pretty much stuck.

I was able to create an iso using the OP's method successfully. I mounted the ISO and unfortunately since I'm on 32 it wouldn't let me run the installer since I bought x64, duh haha its getting late thats my excuse. Although since it brought up that error at all it leads me to believe the ISO works correctly.

Well I think I've had enough fun for tonight. Tomorrow I'll burn the iso on a disk and try booting off it. I will report my results afterward. Thanks for the help everyone.

Make sure the root directory to which you are pointing oscdimg to is correct. In other words, wherever your expandedsetup directory is, you need to adjust the path accordingly.

Actually, if you activated the RC, you're supposed to be able to install from the upgrade discs as-is. You shouldn't have to reinstall XP.

I would love to have some confirmation of this, would make life so much easier.

Okay, I successfully installed Win7 64bit in a virtual machine without any hiccup at all. The iso file I've created using SIW2's instructions worked perfectly. Aside from the problem I encounter from the unloading process, it didn't make much of the difference. I was able to boot into Win7 perfectly fine.

So people with the unloading problem, just go ahead and make the iso file and burn it onto a DVD if you like. The boot file should be good to go and you'll be enjoying Windows 7 in no time!

Thanks again to SIW2 for the help!

It would be nice to have some confirmation from someone who has actually managed to go from 32bit XP/Vista to 64bit Win7 via the bootable ISO method, and actually activated it and accepted serial etc. From what I'm hearing it rejects your serial.
