Any file.iso is an "image file".

The option "Burn an image" or "Burn as an image" must be used.

( You have probably just burned a data cd, which cannot boot.)

You don't need to unzip "FreeBSD-9.0-BETA3-i386-dvd1.iso" file. You gotta burn it as it is, an ISO. Then boot off of it.

Since no-one has pointed it out, please don't type in all capitals as it makes it look like you're shouting.

'burn an image' : Nero.

You can use an "Iso Burner", like Free ISO Burner

Windows 7 allows you to create a bootble disc from within Explorer. As per my screenshot below, just to prove it!

I would suggest not to use Windows'es or Nero's functionality for burning optical discs. They are no good. Find other free solution for this.

I believe if you right-click on the iso file in Windows (7) Explorer, "burn disk image" is what you want. Just did it yesterday.
