    I seem to be at a dilemma here...I CANT burn Windows 7!

    I've tried both x86 and x64 versions of Windows 7, I've made sure their MD5's are official, and they are. In perfect condition. I have used TWO different brands of CD's. I have burned 3 copies on both CD's. I've tried ImgBurn, and the official microsoft dvd burner. But every single time, the verifying fails at 66%. And when using the windows setup, "Expanding Windows Files" stops at 66%! What's wrong?

    ImgBurn is the best, and obviously 3GB will only fit on a DVD. Perhaps its a problem with the Burner itself. Also using "cheap" media could cuase a fail. make sure you are burning to a good DVD-R disc.:)

    I burn at 3x because that's as low as my computer goes. And, are MAXELL DVD-R's good?

    Completely. Everything is 100% fine. Just not W7.

    Use a DVD. I recommend using PowerISO. Finally, burn at the slowest speed possible. (Don't use the PC while it's burning if your on an older PC)

    The problem is in burning and not the iso. Imgburn or any software will burn whatever is requested without verifying the genuineness of the win7 image. Check as advised. But you can also burn at another PC (if this is holding up your install). I burn win 7 with imgburn at 1x (8x for movies).

    I like Virtual CD 10. I also like PowerISO.

    I burn everything at the max speed and have never had errors. Either of the above programs give you virtual drives into which you can insert ISO files to do various installs and create bootable USB or DVDs. They both support burning from the virtual drive and add this option to the right click menu.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I use Ultra iso. Open move to Bootable -> write image -> select you media.... I also burn all my Win 7 to 4GB USB's.
    If you DL image is GOOD there should be NO PROBLEMS..

    Here's what you'll need:
    ===============
    1. A 25-pack Sony 4.7 GB DVD+RW discs. (4.37 GB/each to be exact; inexpensive & can re-burn over and over.)
    2. Latest Nero version. (Highly recommended.)
    3. A working DVD+R/RW burner. (Check your hardware & drivers if necessary.)
    4. Windows 7 ISOs (Check your hashes & CRCs.)

    P.S.: I don't recommend optical emulation programs such as Daemon Tools, PowerISO & UltraISO. Try them through VMware.

    Best of luck to you...
