  • Always use a new blank disc.
  • Close all other programs while burning to prevent errors.
  • If you are unable to burn an ISO image file using these instructions, please consult the help files provided with your specific burning software.
  • If you do not have the ability to burn a disc, contact the IT Service Center for assistance.
  • After the disc has been burned, double-click on the disc and open the installer.
  • Learn more.

Important Notes about OS Upgrades

  • You cannot upgrade a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS, or downgrade from a 64-bit OS to a 32-bit installation. Moving from 64-bit to 32-bit and visa-versa is not supported both require a clean install.
