Hey guys, I would like to know that I have 4 recovery windows 7 files as a Boot disc, Disc1.iso. Disk2.iso, Disk3.iso, and Disk4.iso
Now I have two questions
1. is it possible to combine all of these files to make a single iso file.
2. can I make a bootable USB from these files, if is it what is the best software to do this job?
Waiting for your response guys

Theoretically yes. The easiest way would be to load the existing disks and create an image from it. Why I say that is a ThinkPad T430 Win 7 needs a butt load of drivers. A fresh current install is going to save time in long run since M/S has EOL Win 7 who knows how long Win 7 drivers and M/S updates will be around.
I guess you can mount your existing disks extract the files combine them into one folder and use Rufus to build a new bootable USB ISO.
Keep in mind those disks you have were designed to be loaded sequentially. You may have to keep disk 1 separate and make that bootable with Rufus on it's on USB stick then follow up loading the files in order from the extracted ISO's. See what I mean? ThinkPads are a bit different than an average system so what may be normal for systems in general won't work on your Lenovo TP.
I wish I could be more definitive but you are kind of going in a reverse. It would be far better if you made the backup on a USB stick to begin with. Unfortunately your ThinkPad may not allow you to backup to a single USB drive.
It will be a learning experience, that's for sure. I have loaded a ton of T430's in the day but always used an OEM Win 7 disk.
Good luck!

In the old Dos days, with 7 disk to install, We use to extract all files from Disk to 1 Folder, then insert a Disk 1 disk2 to disk 7 folders. then burn all to a CD-RW and then when you ran install it seen all 7 disk and just worked. Make sure the name is 100% proper. for ea folder.

Completely correct.

(rolls eyes) Who me? Anybody remember 5 1/4" floppies? How about the 5 1/4" drives connected to C-64s? Better yet how about the cassette tape drives for VIC-20s?
My company did a bunch of work for Commodore back in the day so I always had their newest stuff. I did some consulting work with TRS-80s running TRSDOS for a fairly big Pharma company.

Rufus is a good idea for burning iso and make a bootable usb.As well as iMgburn.
More methods and more software can also be found here.

It’s not hard to create a Windows 7 repair USB drive from ISO. However, this drive can’t be used for Windows versions that are different from the Windows version of the Windows ISO file. In other words, a Windows 7 recovery USB cannot be used to repair a computer running Windows 10 and a recovery USB from Windows 7 64bit is unable to repair Windows 7 32bit operating system.

To boot any version of Windows 10/8/7, you can turn to third party software like AOMEI Backupper Standard to create bootable media with USB drive. Apart from creating bootable media, AOMEI Backupper can:
◉ Backup and restore Windows system, disks, partitions, or specific files.
◉ You are allowed to save backup images on a local disk, external hard drive, network share, or cloud service, etc.
◉ It offers you various schedule modes including Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Event triggers and USB plug in to make a backup.
