is there any way i can make a windows install disk out of a installed copy of windows?
No you cant, you need the actual Installation CD...
You can use Norton ghost or Acronis to make a bootable image of your windows installation.
The Windows Installation disc is actualy an image anyway, ever looked inside install.wim?
As for creating a disc no you cant, only thing you can do is create an image of the installation, say for transfering as is to a new HDD.
what i want to do is make a bootable dvd out of windows 7 build 7106 with the English files add?
So you actually want to make a Win 7 live DVD?
You can make bootable disks using nLite (XP) and vLite (Vista). Not sure about Win7.
You can customize the contents of the disk (image) to your liking.
i use vlite but the problem is the files that are down loadable to change build 7106 for Chinese to English are system files so there's no what i can use vlite but making a image out of a already converted copy of build 7106 would work if its possible

I have used the AIK for Vista to make customized install images, with drivers slipstreamed. I have also used it to make WinPE tools CDs that boot to a WinPE command prompt.
