  • Hi,

     

    You can use a DVD instead of CD.

     

    In addition, I suggest that you can “mount” the file as a virtual drive.

     

    With this method, your machine will believe that the file is a real disk drive, and you will be able to read files from this “virtual disk.” This approach is advisable only for installation of applications (such as Office) or minor system upgrades. You will not be able to install an Operating System using this approach, because the virtual drive would disappear at some point during the installation.
