Have to download on another PC and burn the .iso to a DVD, then boot the new PC from that DVD and install.

Yea I'll connect to the Campus Key Manager and get a key. So how would I get the .iso after I download windows 7 (sorry never done anything like this before)?

If u have access to a win 7 pc it burns iso to disk without additionsl software. Otherwise can do that.

Wait if I can download the installation onto an external hard drive, hook it up to a windows 7 laptop, and then tell the laptop to burn the files onto a disc?

Hey guys, I was trying to burn my .iso onto my USB. I've installed everything it has asked, but there is a problem. On step 3 of 4 it asks for my USB device. My USB is plugged in but it still says "No compatible USB devices were detected." My computer can detect it and I have even run a quick format on it. Any ideas? I was going to try to put it on a disc but I don't think a disc has enough space (btw my HDD is 80GB).
