Burning Windows Vista ISO File to a Disk

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I just downloaded an ISO file of Microsoft Windows Vista then I put it on a flash drive so that I can install it on my netbook. Upon running the ISO file, my netbook suddenly crashed.

From this experience, what if I disconnect the flash drive and connect my external hard drive with a copy of Microsoft Windows Vista to my computer, is it possible to burn the ISO file to a disc using Active ISO Burner so that I can install it to my netbook?

Need help upon this and thank you.

Hello Brian Mitchell,

That is the first thing you could have done to begin with, I mean burning the ISO to a CD so as to make it executable, because you cannot execute an ISO file from a flash drive. But if the ISO file crashed down your system when you tried to execute it from a flash drive you should be cautious about its status because it could be having some malware embedded in it that may crash your system during installation. You should make sure that you got the OS from a trusted site.

Just burn the ISO file to a CD, and then insert the CD into the computer and then restart the computer. If the computer will ask you to boot from the CD during the boot process and the installation starts after you select that option then the OS will be working fine. In case it malfunctions then you have to download another ISO file from a trusted site and then burn it to disc before you try executing it.

You will require a blank DVD and another computer with Active ISO burner installed. Run [email protected] ISO burner from the start menu. Use the browse button to specify the location of the ISO file or type the path in the provided field. Drag and dropping the ISO file to the dialogue window should also do.

Insert the blank DVD into the CD drive and wait for it to be detected. I recommend you leave the settings as preset. Click on the burn button and wait until the burn process completes and automatically ejects the DVD.

The DVD is ready.
