Reinstall Disc (WINDOWS 7 ISO IMAGE?0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • So heres my scenario, I want to run windows 7 on my Imac...using Bootcamp. It says i need a windows 7 ISO image. I know that windows 7 was already preinstalled onto my dell so i didn't have to install Windows 7 manually from a disc. The ony cd i got with the del was a reinstall Disc which has: device drivers, diagnostics and utilities on it. (it supports stupido XPS 8100). So basically it all comes down to...does this reinstall disc contain an ISO IMAGE??/?? MY main question..

  • Hi,

    no, the OEM recovery disc don't contain an ISO image.
    Plus, the OEM recovery disc, and the Windows installation of that Dell PC, is not licensed to be used on another make of PC.
    You will need to purchase a fresh license/copy of Windows to use on your Mac.
