    Default Windows 7 - Beta or RC1?

    I can't help but wonder if it really is worth downloading and installing the beta of 7Firstly I don't really know how to burn an ISO and if I don't have a dvd can I put it on to cds and if I am honest I wonder what happens if it causes programmes not to work, will I be able to get my system back. When Vista was coming out I got from microsoft the RC1 dvd which was ultimate in all but name, so is it worth while waiting for that if microsoft is going to do the same. I know that that there are many of you that can help here and I'd be very interested to hear what you say

    To be frank, Windows 7 is very useful and stable in the BETA stage itself. You will find it very fast and friendly if you are using Vista.

    I suggest you download some free burning programs from the "6 Free alternatives to Nero" list and then burn the ISO file. If you don't know, burning an ISO file is just like burning a normal CD or DVD.

    Finally, don't use the upgrade option. Install it on a separate drive. Installation procedure is very similar to Vista.

    You can also read my "10 things to remember before installing Windows 7 " guide to get some info.

    Just download and install, we are always here to help you

    Iso Recorder is a very simple .iso burner. Just download the one appropriate to your windows version.

    ISO Recorder v 2

    You can't burn DVD ISO on CD. ISO size is around 2.5 GB. So you need to burn it on DVD.

    ^ You are welcome. Make sure that you use at least 20 GB free drive, though Microsoft recommends 16 GB it's always better to be future proof.
