Greetings all! Over the weekend I finished building a new pc. Everything started up fine, and I prepared to
install Windows 7. I DID go into setup and chose my
DVD as the first boot option. The university where I teach has an agreement with Microsoft, and student and faculty were able to download an up grade of
Windows 7 Ultimate for $30.00. I did this last December and chose an iso as my download. I extracted with WINRAR, and burned the disc with Roxio Creator Pro 2010. When I tried to boot up with the disc inserted, I get an error about not being able to find a boot source. Should I have used WINISO or MAGICISO to extract??? Or, are there other problems at hand? I have worked with 'iso' files in the past and have had no problems. Thanks in advance for any and all input!!!

Burn the file again, this time DO NOT extract the files, simply choose the burn image option and point it at the iso file.
If Roxio doesn't have that option (I don't use it so have no idea) download one of the free image burning programs, Google will find them.

Roxio(at least the version I have used) does have the burn image option from an ISO file-I've done it many times.

I use DVD Decryptor or Image Burn myself but regardless like was stated above just burn the ISO image to the dvd without extracting.


I want to go like my grandfather did. Peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming at the top of my lungs like the passengers in his car.

Thanks everyone for your help. Anmor was correct about burning the file using the burn image option. My Roxio did have this option, and everything has worked out well. Again...many thanks!!!
