    Yeah, once you confirm which edition, it then ask your language. After you confirm your language, it then displays the two bit version links. The links are only valid for 24 hours, after that you will need to create new links. I went through the steps for your edition before posting my first comment. I however didn't test the links. If you get to that point and still have troubles I can test the links. But as it is you are getting hammed up earlier. I don't know why that is. I could have been bad timing. To test the links again I just created new links.

    This is the link I created for [Windows 7 Professional SP1 English - 64-bit] that is good for only 24 hours. Hopefully it is a link I can share and it will work for you.

    An ISO is a disk image of the DVD, so you will want to restore the image of all the contents. ImgBurn will know how to handle the ISO, so there will be little for you you to worry about. Use the option "Write image file to disc". You need the application to interpret the image and write all the containing file and folders within the image to disk.

    You don't want to burn the file you downloaded straight to disk, which is the Write files/folder to disc".

    ok, copied all files to the disc, verified, and says successfully done! now what? it has label, imp id and file sys - file sys says ISO9660 (bootable), UDF (1.02). is that correct?

    Sounds about right. Reboot your machine and see if the disk will boot.

    o i'm back, the disc went to the boot stage, so I could choose win7 os, i cancelled it from there, didnt know what it would do as far as overwriting my current os or what.
    paranoid, right?

    anyway, after I do complete backup of my system, I can use this disc to reinstall the os completely, right? just put the disc in, hit os7 as stated, and it will do its job?
    anything else I should know right now?
    not doing it yet, have to make sure everything is backed up (another problem, not familiar with). hey, thanks so much for your patience, time and help, I've learned a lot from y'all today.

    Glad I could help. You are on the right track. Get everything backed up first. Then you will be good to go with a reinstall. As long as you save all your data, I can't think of anything else.
