that might be a problem
Warning:
i would NOT trust an unofficial pirated OS
-- it likely has mal-ware pre-installed
-- but if the md5 hash dose match the official hash from redhat ( after you register ) it might be safe
but you HAVE to buy the required support contract


you MUST register at the redhat website to be able to download
then after install YOU MUST REGISTER the install with redhat and buy the REQUIRED SUPPORT CONTRACT
-- yes YOU HAVE TO BUY IT
-- RHEL is not really FREE
the standard 1 year license is $299 / year ( there is a $49/year self support)

or


Install the FREE rebuild of redhat Enterprise Linux 6.5
called CentOS 6.5
it is FREE

Microsoft dose NOT support burning a iso image
you MUST install third party software !!!
you can NOT just copy a iso to a dvd you MUST use " burn as image"

CDburnerXP is a good and free tool

Get Centos. It's exactly the same as Red Hat but free, and you are certain to have correct ISOs.

I am not sure what you are trying to do with Nero - if you downloaded ISO files, why do you need Nero to make ISO files?

You don't have to burn a DVD, CD or build a USB stick, just run up VirtualBox and point it at the ISO file you downloaded. Provided it's a good copy (i.e. no errors when downloading) it should install OK. It worked fine for me with RedHat 5.3.

Play Bonny!
