Windows 7 bootable dvd
  

Hey everyone!

new to the forums but i have a quick question.

How should i go about creating a bootable dvd for windows? i'm building a rig for a friend and i can get him windows 7 for free through an academic program (academic alliance) i have access to through my university (UCF); so it's not illegal at all.

When i built my computer i bought it so i just threw the disk in and i was all set.

What's the best way to go about doing this?

Thanks in advanced.

There are many applications that make bootable DVD's out of files, but it's too much trouble. However if you want then you can go with Vlite, and also it can be done using UltraISO. Check some similar kind of threads here - How to Make A Bootable DVD for Windows 7

It depends upon the iso file, you have to make the iso bootable in that CD. Plus there are lot of burning tools available that causes a lot of issues. So if you are using a good tool like UltraISO there will be no problems at all.

the steps which are covered above in that links is much enough for you . Try with the one that is given here at the top and you will done.
