    You need to compress the install.wim to a smaller install.esd

    How to Convert Install.WIM to Install.ESD or Vice Versa

    After I use the MCT to download the .iso files I usually just store until needed but I just burned the x64 file to a standard 4.7GB DVD-R disc, went fine as 3.6GB fits. The DL disc was not needed unless I need the larger dual-edition on disc for portability, one less disc to keep track of when on a client's site.

    The failure comes in that a DVD+R or DVD-R disc will hold only about 4.2GB of data, maybe a tad bit less, the recording formats the disc 'on the fly' [not noticeable] which reduces the capacity. So far as I can determine the dual-layer discs are available only as DVD+R/DL.
    And a formatted 4GB USB flash drive will hold only 3.8-3.9 GB of data. The point is that whatever will fit on a 4GB USB flash drive will always also fit on a single layer DVD.
