A possible fix for RC1 burning problems

    All,

    I was having difficulty, as many others appear to be, at burning the RC1 ISO
    - although I had no problems with Beta 2. I used Nero 7 with a burn speed of
    1x but was getting verification errors. The only change that I can see is
    that I think I was using Nero 6 for Beta 2, beyond that I don't think
    anything has changed. After 3 failures I decided to try something else.

    I downloaded ImgBurn, a freeware product, which is only about 1.7Mb in size.
    I was dubious about its small size but, not only did I succeed in burning RC1
    on the first try, it did the burn at 4x and provided the correct MD5 in the
    log after verification. I also had to use a DVD-RW because I had no normal
    disks left.

    As for RC1 itself, I don't know yet, the upgrade is almost complete but I
    thought I'd get this info out there. If you're having trouble, its worth a
    go. Good luck!

    I cant believe so many people are having problems getting vista onto a
    bootable DVD. Solution - locate your downloaded ISO file and right click it
    - in the resulting box select " open with" then select "choose programme" and
    select nero burning ROM (nero 6 with latest updates works fine) this will
    open burning ROM with your vista file loaded and click burn (having placed a
    blank DVD -R will do fine) - Done!!

    I used Nero 7 to burn RC1 and had no problem. You can't burn it as an ISO DVD
    you need to burn it as a UDF DVD because of the size.

    I was able to run the RC1 install from an external USB hard-drive using
    DAEMON software without burning a DVD.

    Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeez........ shocking that folks are still [after all these
    years] having problems burning ISO's.

    DVDDecrypter IS the easiest way and works 100% EVERYTIME.

    Ok, so I downloaded RC 1 and then used DVD decryp to burn the file to a
    DVD-R, but then whenever I took the DVD out and then put it back in to
    install, it said that "My Computer cannot run this version of the Operating
    System. Can anybody help?
