hey there thank you for your reply but i only have one file SONY.WIM and don't have

(namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe)

where do i get theise files from

thank you again this is getting to te point where it is going way over my head lol

Ok, i think you will need these steps. Because you want to burn the sony.wim to a dvd, i think you should follow these steps so that you can convert into .iso and then burn it. I got these steps from someone wanting to do the same thing as you pretty much.

1. Install the Windows AIK.

And you'll find the WAIK here:…=en

2. At a command prompt, to change to the PETools folder, type:

Cd C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools

3. To create a WinPE build environment, type:

CopyPE C:\Winpe

4. To copy the discover image created in the previous procedure, type:

Copy /y c:\boot.wim c:\Winpe\ISO\Sources

5. To change back to the PETools folder, type:

Cd C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools

6. To create the bootable ISO image, type:

Oscdimg -n -bc:\winpe\ISO\boot\ c:\winpe\ISO c:\winpe.iso

7. Use a utility that can create a CD or DVD to transfer the ISO image to the appropriate media.

downloading the file from microsoft now 30mins left

right it sounds really complicated is it lol

thank you again for ya advise carn't wait till this is all done as i have spent many days and nights on this lol and running short of hair lol

Good luck with it, let me know how it goes. Hopefully, it should be what you are after, the programme should help you. For the last step, use nero or something like that to burn the iso to DVD
