My new computer is built and works fine. I tried running a copy of win7 I got from my school's subscription to msdnaa but it isnt being read. I tried burning the iso of the winrar archive that I downloaded but it reports "please insert system disk". How do I get it going?


I have vista on it atm which is how I know that the hardware works and it is my burning that is the problem. I tried a different dvd, but it isnt being auto run either.

Make sure you have the CD drive booting first. You will find this in the BIOS settings

Yea I did that. That is how I got vista installed on it to test out the hardware. My question is this:

Since I downloaded a winrar archive .iso file, how do I make it a bootable dvd?

I used free easy burner but I'm wondering if it is burning it as a data disc and not an image.

Is there a better burner to use?

Use that to burn the ISO. That will make it bootable.
