    The only thing I do differently is I don't even mount the ISO, all I do is use 7-Zip to view the files inside the iso, then tag them all, and copy them to the usb drive. Don't even have to mount any iso.

    Couldn't be any simpler. 7-Zip is a Free program.

    Sorry Guys. I've been busy lately and haven't been able to follow up. I thought someone recommended me buy a Scandisk USB memory stick. I bought this one:
    SanDisk 16GB USB SD CZ33 Cruzer Fit 16g USB 2 0 Flash Drive SDCZ33 016G Retail | eBay

    I tried to copy and save the ISO file again and I tried it, but it didn't work again.

    I see others now telling me to not Mount it, but try another way. Can you guys walk me thru what to do now? One person recommended me try a different computer to see if it will boot? Do I just put the stick in a working computer with the bios set up set on USB and see if it works? Does the computer have to be Windows 10? Will it mess anything up? As far as my laptop that is not working right. I don't mind losing any data on it. There is nothing on there that I am worried about. I just didn't want to lose my operating system. I borrowed a friends Windows7 disc. That is the original OS for the broke laptop. I was hoping the disc would restore my old OS. I don't know how these computers work to well. I greatly appreciate your guys help.

    Why not use Rufus to create the flash drive from the downloaded ISO file? That way you can create it for UEFI, MBR and/or GPT.

    If you've already considered this then please ignore this post.

    Well, I found an old xbox 360 hard drive that my son isn't using as he upgraded to a bigger HDD. I installed it and loaded the Windows 7 disc on my laptop. Now I'm trying to run Windows Update. It ran all night and when I woke up this morning, my laptop turned off. I guess I'll try again and turn off all the shut down features.

    However, I still wonder about that other hard drive. I tried to boot the Windows 7 install disc with that old HDD as well and after I went to F12 and changed the boot sequence to the CD rom first, it did try to pull up the disc. However, I get a screen that pops up and tells me to "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD....._" I press any key and nothing happens. The disc drive isn't running any more or anything. I even tried to put this disc and HDD into another laptop and it does the same thing. The other laptop didn't have Windows 7 though. They are both Dell, but the other one ran Windows XP on it. However, now I have Ubuntu. Do you think that HDD is just bad. I don't know what Rufus is.

    I gave you a link tpo Rufus. Take a look at it. It helps you create a install flash drive from a ISO file.
