    is there a way to install windows 7 rc on VMWare Fusion without burning the iso to DVD? perhaps using a USB drive?

    As far as I know, VM software (Parallels, VirtualBox, and VMware) support mounting ISO images natively, as virtual optical devices. You don't even need a USB drive or anything like that. Check your favorite VM software's documentation for how to set up an ISO file as a disk.

    Exactly as wrldwzrd89 said. You just point the CD Drive to the ISO image.

    Follow this guide on how to install. You can have vmware fusion install directly off the .iso file.
