Burn large iso to DVD

Hello,

I downloaded iso file "EN-US_SBS_STD_InstallDVD
" for windows 2011 Small business from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/evalcenter/gg492833.aspx.  The iso file size is 6.5 GB so that I can not burn it to DVD. What can I do to install this operating system?

USB flash drive would be the easiest:

Or, you can get a dual-layer or double-sided DVD.

Hi PowerEdgeTech,

Does xcopy will enable the usb drive to boot without transferring system files?

Yes, it will, as long as you format it as described and set the Primary partition to Active.
