I have already posted a similar thread on MSI's support forum, and hope to hear back before too long, but I wanted to post here as well in case someone knew what the issue I am having is.
I am going to be purchasing an MSI Mortar Arctic for my first build, and read up on the Windows 7 installation. My buddy has a spare copy of Windows 7 that he has graciously given to me, along with the key sitting on my home computer. My issue is the ISO is sitting on the desktop, but when I boot up the Win7 Smart Tool, the ISO itself does not appear on the Desktop folder as selectable. When I click on Desktop, then select OK to choose that folder, it tells me: "Invalid Media Please Select the Windows Installation File".
I'm honestly not certain at what to do. My USB drive is ready and cleared, and the ISO is clearly there to be installed. But when I select the step 1, it doesn't show as selectable in the list.
Any help would be appreciated for the newbie here! Thanks!
