how to burn bootable CD from ISO image in windows

I have 30 day free subscription for RedHat Enterprise Es linux. I have downloaded the first two disks on my windows box and by using nero burned them on CD roms.
My Problem is that i have VM (also trial version) set up on my desktop and even though the cd rom is supposed to be booting my newly created cds, it does not boot.

Could someone please help me make bootable cd out of the image on windows box.

I am struggling so please help

While burning iso images in nero select the option
disk image / saved project and select the Iso images
to burn them.
even though this might sound little naive make sure that
the boot device order or priority is selected in bios to
use cdrom as boot device
Good luck

Oh it can probably boot. Unless you burned a bad disc, you would actually have to go out your way to make it not boot. (initial splash screen at least)

Its just a setting somewhere. Bios probably. And if by VM you meant vmware thats usually automatically configured as well. Usually. You should find it pretty easy. You can even boot from the iso itself if you're not sure about your cdrom.

Thats about it, unless you have a broken cd-rom or ancient pre 96' computer.

you can try to use magiciso to burn iso file to cd or dvd. It works very well for me.
