Windows 7 Beta Bade Media? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have downloaded both the 32bit and 64bit version of Windows 7.  Using 2850 both via the disc drive and via Dell RAC virtual disc media method, both ISO images (32bit and 64bit) generate CDBOOT: Unable boot media - error code 5 messages when disc media read attempt is done.  Know that 2850 works, can load any other OS disc media, be it XenServer, VMware ESX, Windows 2008 fine, so suspect the ISO images on MSDN?  Oh, if I put either ISO (once burned) to physical media into an existing system, say a desktop running Windows XP SP3, the auto-run on the physical media runs, and I get the "Install Windows 7" window popup.  So it really does appear to be the boot sector setup in the Windows 7 ISOs?
