  3. you need to burn the iso to a dvd first using something like cdburnerxp or imgburn.

    Burn the iso to a disk. (you can use imgburn free software)

    Boot to the disk and follow the prompts.
  5. You can also install it to a flash drive 4GB or larger:

    I tried burning it to a disk with imgburn but it kept saying there was a problem when trying to burn the disk. And it was unsuccessful.

    Might be a bad disk. It happens.
    Try another. Or go with the USB option.

    I've always heard use a slow write speed. Also you could also make a bootable USB it's very simple.

    Here is what I've used.
    http://www.wintobootic.com/

    Just download the ISO
    Open the program
    Plug in the USB
    Select the USB(If you have to)
    Open the ISO
    After it's done, plug the USB into the other computer and pull up the boot menu when it turns on, select the USB and install Windows.

    Try download the ISO file again, if there is the problem during the download then you can't burn it to the disk, and burning into the disk. And follow the link for how to.

  10. Also... are you using the proper disks for your cd/dvd drive? E.G. DVD-R or DVD-RW.

    I have found that trying to burn on a RW disk when the Drive specific states DVD-R I get errors.. which makes sense ;) lol.
