    From what I remember....

    BA should have a + plus sign to add files. It should be as simple as click 'Make boot iso' +Add files(you find and add the iso you have of win 7, click 'Make'. Once made(and saved?) you choose 'Burn iso' Find and add and burn to DVD.

    Ah, I see the '+' now... :(

    Yes, it starts by asking what type of file, and I select 'Boot'.

    I can;t say I've seen 'Make boot iso' as an option?

    Thanks Mr Ha - and everyone.

    Ok, since I'm running out of blank discs (they are all +R) and I have 5 useless ones now over my desk - could you confirm, please, if the list of files I've shown in the earlier post look 'right' for this?

    Ta very muchly.

    It is easier if you change 'View' to 'Classic icons'

    And the list of files look right(even though I thought you said it was an iso file). So you already have it expanded.

    And I'll send you a great big kiss in return :D

    Nah - I'm gonna nail this bar steward. Er, with everyone's help...

    Oookkkaaayyyyyy...

    Fired up BurnAware and the first menu page is:

    BA1.jpg

    from which I'm guessing I choose "Disc Images" from that first, LH list?

    In which case I now get:

    BA2.jpg

    Right. Do I choose 'Burn ISO' or 'Make Boot ISO'?

    I think I chose 'Make Boot ISO' and it all seemed cool - except it didn't burn it on to the DVD (it didn't have a 'Burn' option) but instead gave me a file to save "Make". Which I have.

    What now?! o_O

    You need to burn the image!!!! You need to select that image

    When you select 'Burn ISO' you should then have the option to click on the saved ISO you downloaded. Click on that image and continue

    I need my hand held...

    Which of these menu options do I choose? They seem counter-whatsit; I want a 'bootable ISO', yes? That specific option ain't there.

    Look, I know I'm a doofus, but it chust doesn't make sense to me.

    Ah, but that ain't a bootable ISO, so there :p

    I thought I had to choose make a boot disc? See? I'm not daft... :oops:

    'Burn ISO'

    The ONE option that gives me what I want - 'Make a BOOT ISO' - doesn't then give me the option to 'Burn' it.

    See? That's why I'm crying...

    But that ain't a 'bootable' disc - which is what I've been trying to do all along... :(

    Oh dear, you are lost!

    'Burn ISO' is the one to choose as it will create a disc for you from the image you have downloaded. This image has the files contained in it to allow it to boot. o_O

    'Make a Boot Disc' is for when you dont have an image that contains bootable files.

    Win 7 image will have the correct files within it
