    I want to burn the Windows 7 RC so I can use it on my Windows XP computer. I can see the file on the disc when I am on my Mac. The disc wont load on the Windows PC. I'm assuming there is a compatibility issue.

    Images > Burn...

    Or

    The "Burn" button in the tool bar.

    If you burn it in the correct format (bootable).

    Preview isn't allowing me to "annotate" an image.

    Any computer with a optical drive will read a disc that you burned off of an ISO.

    It's a bug, you have to add it to the toolbar. Right-click and Customize.

    The .ISO is a big file. You can, but you need a really big USB Drive. Also, it would be more difficult to boot from it.

    What format is the USB Drive in? What is XP not reading? The drive or the ISO?

    What disc?

    If it is the disc you burned following our instructions, then the iso is screwed up.

    It's the same iso I used to install Windows 7 on my Mac, so it def. works. Windows XP wont even read the disc I insert. There is an iso on that disc !!:mad:

    Then you didn't burn the image, you burned the file.

    You need to burn the image, not anything else. Just that.

    Are you using the same exact disc that you used for your Mac, or did you re-burn it now?
