So call Microsoft, tell them you are a college student and want a free copy of Windows so you can play games. See what they tell you. (If you had called yesterday instead of posting a confusing question on an unrelated Linux forum, you'd have your answer already.)

I am not sure why you assume the gentle readers of linuxquestions.org have any authority over Microsoft.

The ISO I have is for a repair disk.

I did re-read my post.

From what I understand M$ wants you to pay for new OS disks.


More of a reason for looking for a linux program to write the ISO to my thumb drive.

H,

Not if you have a valid license to own the ISO for Win/7. Get what you paid for!

As for your readings the thread in complete content. Your looking at this from rose color glasses and not from a true perspective. Put this thread in front of someone else and ask them how they view it and ask for a translation.

If you have the win/7 License with a valid install then perform the recommended actions for creating a Win/7 repair disk. Else get the Install disk from M$. No, they want you to pay to have it shipped. You already paid for the license, right? If this is for a pre-bundled system then contact the manufacture for a repair or install disk. There are alternatives to the solution. The one to use a GNU/Linux forum to circumvent is not one!

Fair enough.

I will call the manufacturer and ask for disks but I always hear about how people get screwed this way.

M$ just told me that I will have to pay.

This is why I was just hoping there was a program for burning to a thumb drive..

I have windows software that can do it but I obviously can't use that atm. XD

If you have the iso you can burn it and do all those takes in the live PE.
