    What is Window 7 ISO File? Is it necessary for a Window 7 clean install?

    I am concocting a new rig and I was reading instructions on how to do clean install. I came up across the subject and I was wondering whether it should apply to my work. I have a new copy of Win7 (Full) Home Premium 64 Bit OS and I guess that will be my install disk.

    If you have a retail or OEM disk, it is a bootable install disk which is not the same as an ISO image. Microsoft and their partners such as DigitalRiver allow downloading an ISO image which must be burned (not the same as copied) to a DVD before it can be used.

    While we're on the subject, what is a "System Builder" copy of Win7? It costs less but there may be a catch.
