putting the iso on a disc....


i was going to use CDBurnerXP Pro to put the .isos on a disk but then it made it non-bootable. is that good or bad? and if i make it bootable, it gave me tons of options to screw with.

so can anyone tell me what to do on this new years day?

If you have nero you can select from one of the menus to burn an ISO, then select your ISO and burn away.

You shouldn't need to make an ISO bootable from the burning app. ISO's should just be burnt as they are. The disk image already contains everything it needs to be bootable.

Yup. As long as the ISO's or the CDR's weren't corrupted.

It does matter how you create the CDs.

If you followed the instructions below then your all set. Since you already burned the CDs verify that they do not contain just a single file ending with .iso.
