I just want to burn Windows 7 RC

I use Ubuntu 9.04 - the Jaunty Jackalope

I am completely new to Linux and been messing around with it for a few days now. Minus the exasperating ordeal to simply open Executables, or even the agonizing dilemma of having to install programs, I really am sort of enjoying the masochistic experience one tends to suffer when trying something new.

I need to burn Windows RC till I buy the product in a week (If I like it). I have a copy saved onto my hard drive I have not used yet and now feel I would like to install it before I spend the 200$. Ubuntu is the only OS I have right now as I have recently upgraded my computer.

My problem is bassera will not read the windows Iso and when I try to burn it, the DvD becomes a coaster.

What do I do to get this 2.4 gigabyte Iso file onto a DvD so I can install it? I Just Want To Burn This Onto A DVD And I Cannot Seem To Even Be Able To Do That. Feeling very frustrated as I have been mad googling for almost a week. ;p

Are you doing a "Burn as Image" or just creating a data CD with the ISO on it?

Or try this from the command line (adjust the iso file path and /dev/hdc to your dvd drive path).

Darn it, I thought you meant "burn it" as in a fireplace.

Welcome to LQ!

The release date for M$7 stable is today. Your 'RC' will be a toaster anyway. Take a look at 'M$ discussion'. Your free is about to be 'nothing'.

It worked!

Thank you very much

I am trying it for a week, if I like it I will buy it next friday. Thats a fair evaluation period. Sadly I have programs that I need that are Dependant upon Windows and that... is where they hook you

I have seen things such as dual boot, perhaps this is my next step
