    Can anybody please tell me how to get this into a DVD. The Windows 7 I downloaded it 64 bit so that once I make a DVD I can install it on my Macbook Pro. My desktop PC is 32 bit. I have Nero so the burning part won't be a problem. I just need to know how to make a DVD out of what I downloaded or make an ISO so that I can burn it. Helppppp! I'm going crazy!

    Just use OSX's Disk Utility to burn the ISO image.

    You could also use the terminal as well ;) (ripped from slashdot.com) I use this often enough as I create the ISOs from the terminal anyways.

    1. Insert CD/DVD source

    2. Fire up a Terminal, you can then determine the device that is you CD/DVD drive using the following command:

    $ drutil status
    Vendor Product Rev
    MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-835E GAND

    Type: DVD-ROM Name: /dev/disk1
    Cur Write: 8x DVD Sessions: 1
    Max Write: 8x DVD Tracks: 1
    Overwritable: 00:00:00 blocks: 0 / 0.00MB / 0.00MiB
    Space Free: 00:00:00 blocks: 0 / 0.00MB / 0.00MiB
    Space Used: 364:08:27 blocks: 1638627 / 3.36GB / 3.13GiB
    Writability:
    Book Type: DVD-ROM
    3. Umount the disk with the following command:

    $ diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk1
    Disk /dev/disk1 unmounted
    4. Create the ISO file with the dd utility (may take some time):

    $ dd if=/dev/disk1 of=file.iso bs=2048
    5. Test the ISO image by mounting the new file (or open with Finder):

    $ hdid file.iso
    6. The ISO image can then be burnt to a blank CD/DVD.

    1. Install the ISO Recorder PowerToy (Make sure to choose the correct version)
    2. Download a actual Windows 7 ISO from Here (What you have there is just the files)
    3. Right click on the ISO and choose "Copy Image to CD" (Simple eh?)

    LOL should have looked more closely at the screenshot. You are right, the OP is on a Windows box. ;) :p

    I didn't try any of these actually. Thanks but I solved it before getting any responses. Downloaded an ISO burner and simply burned the ISO which I didn't know was there to a DVD. Thanks anyways.
