    How to install Vista from ISO file

    I have downloaded the Vista ISO file from MSDN and burned that file
    onto a DVD.

    How do I install from the ISO file that is on the DVD?

    thanks,

    You can't just burn the file to a DVD. You must use a program such as Roxio
    Easy DVD Creator or Nero to "extract" and then burn the image "contents" to
    a DVD. What you have done will not work as anything except as a drink
    coaster.

    ok. I downloaded the Windows Resource Kit and the dvdburn program did
    the trick.

    thanks!,

    How do I install from the ISO file that is on the DVD?

    Steve:

    Use "Burn Image to Disc" to create the DVD

    Open Roxio
    Select File: New Project: Copy: "Burn Image to Disc"
    Browse to where the Vista Image is stored on your hard disk
    Insert a Blank DVD
    Click the red button in lower right corner
