A little help burning an ISO
 
I'd like to install Windows 7 on my PC. Problem is, I've never "burned" an iso before, which I'm guessing shouldn't that hard. I was just wondering if there is a specific kind of DVD I'm soppose to buy? Would this be fine?

Any DVD will do - but you have to select ISO burn in your software.

I see, awesome. Now is it safe to use winows 7 as a primary OS? or is it a smarter choice to partion my hard drive for windows 7?

I'd say its safe, but just to make sure i'd partition the HD, or just use a spare entirely.

Windows 7 should NOT be a primary OS at all.

Use imgburn, its easy and free.

Just because its stable for you does not mean it is for everyone else.

Go read the Windows 7 thread and see how many have had troubles.

I agree, I never use Beta for my primary OS, I have had a few BSOD using 7.

I've had a whole bunch of lockup/freezing problems as well..

I had it melt down on me after a few weeks of it running beautifully. I don't think I'd recommend it as a sole os right now.
