    hey. can somebody help me in extracting my copy of windows vista ultimate? don't worry. it was a legit download. i've tried extracting it several times, and i still can't get it right. aren't you supposed to extract it to get the .iso image? i have no idea as to what i'm doing. i have winrar, and even that hasn't made things easier. somebody please help me. thanks.

    If you downloaded the file as an .ISO image file, then you will need to
    burn that "image" to disc.
    'The Official ImgBurn Website'
    (http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download)
    Get the free program from the above link, unless you have an image
    burner that is, then burn the .ISO to disc. Will need to go on a DVD as
    its a big program.

    i never downloaded it as an .iso image. they're split rar archives. 14 split rar archives to be exact. and i'm trying to figure out how to extract those split rar archives to get the .iso image. and that's where my problem lies. i don't know how to extract the split rar archives to get the .iso image. is there a tutorial that can give me some help in extracting an .iso image from split rar archives by any chance?

    You may need to combine the archives and then extract them, but it all
    depends on what the person who did this intended.

    So you need to ask *them*, since nobody else would know what was done.

    If the download was legit, as you so state, the download would not be in 14
    split archives. It would be in 1 large .iso file from Microsoft. Now, where
    did you say you got this download from? Why don't you post the download link
    so we can go there and actually see what they are offering?

    ...

    Normally you would simply run unrar on the file with the .rar extension and
    it automatically unpacks and combines the entire set of 14 archives.
