    Hey so my school gives everyone the option to get Windows 7 for free. I downloaded it off this site with my friends windows laptop. I went through the downloading and unpacking stages(there was an install step I chose not to do. Then I just copied all those files onto my dvd-rw and put it in my MBP thinking it would work for Bootcamp. The disc has a folder with an .iso file in it and the program that let me download the files and stuff and when I mount that .iso there is all sorts of files in it (autorun and stuff). I can't run any of those files. Bootcamp kept saying that no disc was detected. What can I do to fix this?

    Do I need to mount the .iso then burn it? I just burned the .iso to the disc and bootcamp didn't find anything?

    Open the ISO in Disk Utility and burn it from there.

    In disk utility do I actually mount up the image? or do I just click on the image and burn it?

    I burned the disc and everything was going fine until about 35% through the Windows 7 installation there was an error message that said it couldn't find the required files error code 0x80070570. I'm re-burning the disc right now. Any other ideas?
