Hello Guys,

I recently downloaded a legal version of Windows XP Professional 64 BIT and I burned it on CD with 'Nero Burning Rom'.
When I insert the disc into my CD-Drive it autoruns well I see a few options. When I start my computer I'd like to see my computer using that CD to boot so I can format / install my new O.S. However it doesn't read / see the cd. The boot priority is set so it reads my CD-Drive first. Because it doesn't see the CD I think I burned it wrong on to a CD.

I used Nero Burning Rom to burn it and I selected CD-ROM (UDF/ISO). After that I just dragged all the files (Setup.exe etc) into the other window and burned it. I guess I have to use the CD-ROM(Boot) option or whatever to let it work? If so .. I need to have an Image file to make it bootable. Any clues where I can get it? At the moment I only have all the other normal files like setup.exe.

I'd appreciate it someone can tell me how to make this CD bootable.

You should have downloaded an .iso file. In Nero, Select Burn Image... under recorder and browse to the .iso file.
