Hi,

please don't expect forum member to send you emails. Here at the LQ forum we communicate using the forum. You can however expect lots of spam from bots now that you've put your email in a mailto: link in your post.

I've never used Windows 7 or burned an iso under windows, but putting:
"windows 7 how to burn iso image" into duckduckgo.com returned the
following page with "step by step" instructions as the first hit.

http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b...windows-7.aspx

So perhaps ddgiyf.

Evo2.

Hi, I agree with evo2. Also, this is a forum for Linux Questions, not Windows. There are forums for Windows too! Try: http://www.w7forums.com or something. Also, please don't blame us when you have spam to your e-mail.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

It does not look like a particularly warm welcome but the posters above are right. In the future, to get quicker and better responses (so for your own benefit) please follow a few simple rules:

1. This is a forum. We don't use emails.
2. Don't demand anything. We are volunteers.
3. Before you ask a question, use google search. There's a really big chance that someone else had a similar problem before.
4. Use meaningful titles. Avoid the following: urgent (it is not urgent for us), help me (we know that you need help - that is probably why you posted in the first place). Instead, be descriptive: burn linux image on dvd in windows 7.

As a LQ moderator I should remind the basic rules of the forums usage, but other members have already intervened in my behalf. I've just taken the liberty to change the thread title to something that should give a better exposure to your question. At this point it remains for me nothing more than to welcome you!

Isn't ISO burning built right into Windows 7? http://lifehacker.com/5139424/how-to...s-in-windows-7 I'd imagine that would be the easiest way to do this without having to install any new software. Good luck with Fedora!
