I bought and downloaded windows 7 pro with a student discount. I bought it for a new computer I've just built. I can't seem to figure out how to make it into a bootable disk. it says it's an ISO but it's actually an exe DLMWin7pro64US-ISO.exe. This is the last step before i'm finished with my build. I've tried using an old upgrade disk that I got for my laptop but it would never actually install. I installed ubuntu linux on it just fine so it's not a hardware problem.

take my advice for a grain of salt.
its and ISO, but there is an .EXE attached.
ISO's are typically the entire CD placed into it. So the .exe would actually be within the .ISO
Have you tried burning the files onto a CD?
no, I didn't think it would work. would it? what you said was kinda confusing
