hi,

i have a legit windows 7 64 bit iso image file that ive burned to dvd but it wont boot up.

ive tryed various iso burning tools such as poweriso and nero and have tryed various burning speeds but no dice, windows xp always boots up after failing to read the dvd at startup.

any else managed to successfuly create a windows 7 boot disk?

Try imgburn and burn at slowest speed, also make sure 1st boot device is your dvd drive.

This worked for me.

could also try a different brand of disc.

ive now also tryed the two burners mentioned in this thread and still no luck. ive now tryed 5 different burners and yep i am selecting the cd/dvd rom as the boot drive.

im usin TDK dvd which are brand new so surely they all cant be duff. have u guys created a windows 7 64 bit boot disk?

i got the iso from the msdn website as im a student. what else could the problem be, bad download maybe?
