    Hey guys,
    I downloaded a windows 7 ultimate 32 bit iso file from downloadbay . info. However I am not sure how to burn it. Do I extract the files into a new folder and then burn it or do I keep the file as it was (Winrar ISO) and then burn it ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Cric.

    I understand what you guys are saying, but I already have the file downloaded as a winrar ISO file. Can I burn the winrar ISO file directly using imgburn or do I have to extract the setup etc. from the wirar ISO and then burn it?
    Thanks.

    I know you understand which one I need to burn. You've explained it but I still don't understand.....So I took the desktop pictures.
    Do I burn this one:

    or
    Do I burn this one:
    Extracted.jpg
    Thanks a lot. Sorry I am sort of new to this.
    Once again, Thanks.

    1st one is the .iso
    Got to winrar, open it >Options>Setings... and untick little window "ISO" then icon should change to CD Disc, then burn it.

    Put in an empty dvd in to dvd drive -> Right Click on ISO file -> Open With -> Windows Disc Image Burner -> BURN

    OR

    Put in an empty dvd in to dvd drive -> Right Click on ISO file -> Burn disc image -> BURN

    I'm not sure how much simpler this can be made

    I have another question. I installed the 32 bit windows 7 ultimate. But my ram is 4gb, should I install 64 bit instead or will it be ok with the 32 bit I have running presently.

    You can use 32Bit windows if you want, windows till address all 4GB but you'll only have roughly 3.2GB available, the rest is for videomemory for example.
