Burning fedora iso dvd on windoze 7


Ok. I tried to install Mint 15 and it screwed up my grub. I can't go into my computer.
I am now on windows 7 trying to burn a Fedora 19 iso image on a dvd.
When I google they tell me to right click and choose burn image, but I don't have that option on my right click.
I don't like windows so that doesn't help. I don't know what to do.
Pls help.

not really sure... i think each burning software puts the write image feature in a different place as different names.

do you have a flash drive ?; i think its easier to make a live-usb of fedora.

I finally found it under the open item. So I burned it and booted my box on it.
Now I have another problem.
I have a double boot with windoze 7. Fedora asks me to choose which disk to install to, but it doesn't tell me what is on the disks like it used to.
I've been using Ubuntu 10.04LTS for a long time and I don't remember which disk windoze is on.
Both disks are ATA WDC WD15EARS-OOZ 1.43TB with 2.36 MB free, which is weirdly coincidetial.
Also, the way they work is that windoze thinks it's on the first disk, but what it sees as the first disk is not necessarily the first disc as it seems to read the bios rather than the actual discs, if you follow my drift.
I really don't want to write on my windoze disk and have to go through an installation with all the microsoft hassle.

So I tried selecting the second (sdb) disk, and clicking the claim button, but it was ntfs, so I went back and selected the first (sda). It was ext 4.

Success! Fedora 19 is installed and windoze is intact.
