I can't figure this out - maybe someone can help me out.

I own a Gateway 7805u. I'm trying to burn Windows 7 x86 and x64 and get the following error: 0xc0AA0301.

I am attempting to burn Windows 7 discs through Windows 7. They are Maxell DVD's and I've never had issues with them and I know they work perfectly since they are the only ones I've used. I've burned Windows 7 on them a while back and they work perfectly.

This problem just started recently and I've burned Windows discs before but this is the first time I'm seeing this issue. I've tried burning through Windows 7, tried Imgburn, and a few other programs - They all give me errors.

All my drivers are up to date and I do not know what can be causing this.

From what I read, some people suggested to install or upgrade DVD drivers but I don't believe that is a issue. Others say it is the DVD or dvd speed. once again, these DVDs are good dvds and ive burned windows operation systems on them before. I've tried different speeds as well.

Any suggestions?

I don't remember if the code for the error was the same, but I had a similar problem with a win7 iso a while ago. I solved (not really a solution, more like a workaround :) ) it by mounting the iso with virtual clonedrive and selecting copy disk option in nero, setting virtual drive as source.

^ Is that burning the ISO or no?

Also, I just tried using Power ISO at the lowest speed of 2.4. Stopped at 59%.
