I looked at the "Members" thing on the top of the page, and about 10 pages from 53 and beyond are new members from today. All for Windows 8. I guess new people don't notice the red bar on the top of the website...

This laptop cost me Â£650, how dare it fail.
Did you even read my post? Use a FLASH DRIVE. Theres no need to keep wasting DVD's and a perfectly good laptop. Youre being quite irrational.
I lost my 16gb flashdrive. I'll have to install via virtual box. I never knew windows installed via USB, I'll buy a new one tomorrow.
Indeed it does.
I use a 4 GB Flashdrive to install Windows 7 SP1 all the time when I do my monthly/bi-monthly reinstall to my SSD. I suggest getting an 8GB for future purposes.
If you need instructions on how to install it a simple google search may help, however. Usually copying files from the ISO will work, but also, if it doesnt prompt for "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" then you either did it wrong or you have to select it to boot from (usually under Harddisks and NOT Removable Media)

Could someone help me? I got an Error message with IMG burn whilst burning first DVD. Then I burned the DVD successfully and My drive is now having difficulties reading discs! My laptop is covered but if it's sent of it takes ages to repair.
Is it all disks or just that one?
Its possible the drive failed. I know my sisters laptop had an issue like that. Check the Device Manager, what you should also do is after burning a disk have it verified to make sure it can READ all the data.
Argh! I just tried 7850 and it reads. My drive failed to burn the 7955 ISO twice D<
DVD burning for operating systems should NEVER be done at max speed. Try half speed or even slower to get better results.
The problem is that ImgBurn tends not to allow undercranking of SATA burners.
I normally use ImgBurn and have a Samsung SH-223B (Samsung and Toshiba have a JV that makes drives for both companies, with some destined for Toshiba's various portables, while others are for the OEM/BYOPC space, with Samsung branding); it refuses to allow underspeed burning (basically I *have* to burn at 4x). Thank goodness for BURN-PROOF (which is standard on all Samsung SATA burners, and which ImgBurn supports). That could well be the issue (your portable burner doesn't support BURN-PROOF), which is Real Surprising, considering that it's been pretty much standard fare for the past three years for burners of any price.
