Can i install Windows 7 on an ISO disk via disk boot?

So, I need to know if I can install windows 7 x64 via direct boot when I start up my computer it is in ISO format. So like my default boot will be my DVD drive to install it. can I do that with it being ISO format?

  1. U will set the boot order for the CD/DVD. That's all u need. But what u wrote doesn't make much sense.
  2. I got a new MB and Processor so my current windows 7 install doesn't work since it isn't Genuine so I have to install Windows again but I can't do it in windows because I get BSOD when i try to log on windows. Makes Sense Now?

    What he said ^

    Also, flash drive installs feel like they are 100x faster and you don't have to listen to the DVD drive make all that racket.
  11. I have a system at work that has passive cooling on the E-350 CPU and an SSD hard drive. It was odd to be in the room when they were installing Win 7 Pro from a flash drive and the computer never made any noise other than the beep when posting.
