Windows can not natively create CDs from an ISO file. If you do not have Nero or Roxio then you need a utility like:

I do not have any personal experience with using this utility. You might want to search the web for other ISO burning utilities.

CDRWIN is available for free trial download from Goldenhawk, and is excellent software.

A 'ISO' is like a 'virtual photograph' per say, of a CD.

All you need is a tool (as suggested avobe) to burn this ISO image to a CD.

The ISO image once burned in a CD, is going to be a bootable CD.

Look for an option to "burn image" and you'll be fine.
