Burning a dvd from and ISO for intallation


Down loaded mint 11 and burned to a dvd using w7 built in burner. Tried to install but only shows listed files.
Is W7 burner unable to convert an ISO? Or am I doing something wrong? or forgetting something to get it to install?

As far as I know, Windows is unable to burn an ISO without additional software.

Good

It would be nice idea to mark this thread 'solved' then.

Solved should be in 'thread tools'. 'Thread tools' is at the top right of the 1st post.
