Unpacking ISOs w/ WinRAR


Quickie,

I cannont seem to get thses ISOs to burn right and i was wondering if i use WinRAR to unpack the ISO will i beable to boot from it after of course i burn it to disc... My only thing that worries me is that there is no bootstrap loader to tell the machine to boot from the disc... Can anyone help on this matter?

Thank everyone

You should *not* unpack the CD images if you intend to burn them to CD and boot from them.

Your Windows CD burner program should have an option like "Create CD from image" or "Record CD image", which is what you want. You do not add the .iso file to a CD layout.
