I am trying to launch Exchange 2007 on Server 2008 with the ISO does it need to be on a boot disk perhaps?

A *.ISO file is an image file...You can use nero to burn it to cd/dvd.

Or get a program like WinISO to read/extract etc.
Here's a list of ISO readers:

Would the Image file needs to be on a boot disk since I don't see what the difference is at the moment running off the hard drive...

It doesnt need to's just and Install is it not?
Exchange server is not an OS...So you dont need to BOOT off of it, you have your SErver 2008 loaded and then install exchange 2007 w/in server 2k8.

You may need to burn it on to CD/DVD to deploy it (run the setup that is...)
But any of those ISO programs should allow you to EXTRACT it to a folder?!  and then you should be able to go to that folder and run the install from the folder....

yeah its just an install I already went through the ISO Boot to get the OS on there.  Extraction sounds like a pretty good idea at this point.

Ya, it'll install Faster off the hard drive than it would off the cd/dvd.
