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.

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