    I used Verbatim DVD-R AZO for creating Windows installation media when I installed Windows 10 on a new computer and Windows 7 on an older computer this year. It is the same DVD media I use for video. However, there are now many computers that don't have a DVD drive or a Blu-ray drive so the use of flash drives as installation media is becoming more common.

    These days, dvd and even bd is too slow for most people.
    I'd go with a usb flash drive (or better, usb 3), or ssd.
    Big difference in speed.

    But if you are STUCK using only dvd media, follow what usually_quiet said.

    Verbatim DataLife AZO or Taiyo Yuden. The only two known and proven good media today.

    LOL if you use inkjet printable discs you can almost even make them look like they're real. except the discs won't have a holographic hub....
