Not able to create windows 7 bootable disk

Hi,

I used imgburn software to create bootable disk of Windows 7 as mentioned in following thread.

http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=11194

However, when I tried to boot from the disk, I got message- 'Unreadable boot configuration data'.

Please check the link below for the screen shot I took while writing DVD.

Though the screen shot shows error while verification, I got successfully completed message once I inserted the auto ejected CD drive after write operation.

Please let me know what can be the problem?

    Instead of making the ISO, try downloading the ISO from the official links in this thread in the w7 forums:
    http://www.w7forums.com/official-windows-7-sp1-iso-image-downloads-t12325.html

    Use the USB-DVD tool to burn to ISO:

    Then let me know if it works.

    Probably. I tried the same thing with the Windows 7 preinstalled that came with my PC, didn't work. Found that thread, clean installed with a usb flash drive (couple months later with a DVD) and I had no problems.
  4. Ok... I am downloading ISO file from torrent. Already downloaded 50% almost.

    Can you please let me know, once I download ISO file, how should I create bootable DVD in simple terms?

    Install the Windows 7 USB/DVD tool from Microsoft:
    http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool

    1. Click the Windows START button, and click WINDOWS 7 USB/DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL in the ALL PROGRAMS list to open the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.

    2. In the SOURCE FILE box, type the name and path of your Windows 7 ISO file, or click BROWSE and select the file from the OPEN dialog box. Click NEXT.

    3. Select USB DEVICE to create a copy on a USB flash drive or select DVD disk to create a copy on a DVD disk.

    4. If you are copying the file to a USB flash drive, select your USB device in the drop-down list and click BEGIN COPYING. If you are copying the file up to a DVD, click BEGIN BURNING.

    When your Windows 7 ISO file is copied onto your chosen media, install Windows 7 by moving to the root folder of your DVD or USB flash drive, and then double-click Setup.exe.

    The usb/dvd tool is specifically used to make a bootable dvd. simply open the tool, pick the iso file, then burn to disk. Then you can boot from the DVD.
  8. Great. Thanks.
