How to Create Bootable ISO From Folder  Files [ Windows 7 ]
Do you want to create a bootable ISO from folder or files extracted from Windows Cd or Dvd?

If yes then you are at right place.

But before we begin let's see how this post helped me a lot.

A couple of months ago, accidentally my pc got infected from some viruses due to which my windows got corrupted.

And all my files got deleted so I decided to do a clean Windows 7 install.

But unfortunately, at that time I was not having any copy of Windows 7 DVD to install it.
So I borrowed it from my friend and then install it on my Pc.

After the installation is done, I copied all the windows installation files from that DVD so that I can use it later.

And after a few weeks, I realized that instead of creating a bootable iso from Dvd I copied all the installation files like some normal file.

Even though I could easily get that Dvd again but I decided to create a bootable ISO from that folder or copied files.

And then I searched for this post and learned how to make bootable ISO from a folder or extracted files.

And you can also do so.
