    So I downloaded Windows 7, and Im kinda confused on how to make the boot disk. I have tried to use Disk Utility by selecting the ISO and clicking burn, but there is always an error. Do I burn the disk image itself, or the folder that comes from it?

    Any help would be appreciated. :)

    why?

    not sure why disk utility won't work. it should. have you checked the hash for ensure there is no corruption? that being said, i would normally burn with toast. or a free alternaive is burn

    What's the error message and are you burning to a blank DVD? Disk Utility is the easiest way to burn ISOs on a Mac.

    Ill try Burn. Thanks.

    It says:

    "Unable to burn "super long name". (The device failed to respond properly, enable to recover or

    and it stops there, as the window is too small to show the full message, and I cant make it bigger.

    Thank you for the google, but I got it to work. I just decided to moved it to my XP side, and made the ISO disk there.

    Thank you for all your help though. :)
