Seems easy enough.

Your average Microsoft issued Windows 7 DVD is bootable. It's not copy protected so all you need to do is duplicate it.

Seems easy?

Seems easy, but not sure..

So u mean just copy the whole thing and burn another dvd??? i thought u need to create an iso image of the windows?

You could do that too.

I'm unsure why an ISO would be any use except to keep a copy so you can create it again.

Could you tell more?

As Bob said it's easy

just do a copy. I think you may be confused with the download purchase of W7 upgrade which is typically an ISO file, it then needs to be extracted using an ISO capable burning program to create a bootable dvd.

RE :

One of the easiest methods for creating a simple bootable CD is to use the CD recording software program.
