Default Making a bootable dvd


I have a 2.7gb iso file which I want to burn to a dvd and make that dvd bootable.
I gather doing a botable dvd is different from a bootable cd, so any guidance
would be appreciated.

What software, would Nero do it ok, or do I need something else, etc, etc?
The file is aready an iso file with a boot folder included

Thanks

Just burn the bootable .iso to DVD with Nero: [Recorder, Burn Image].

I have tested non-HighSpeed erasables in my 12x HighSpeed
and 8x non-HighSpeed Plextors and find substantially higher
error rates at 4x in the HighSpeed drives.
======================

The above is an unadulterated white LIE. There was NO way Mike Richter
could have found "error rates". First, there was NO error rate
measuring software supporting Plextors. Second, even if there was
such a software, it could not have found error rates -- because
the above Plextors do NOT report C1 errors.

There is no difference. Both cd and dvd follow the same El Torito
bootable format specification.

Just burn the bootable .iso to DVD with Nero: [Recorder, Burn Image].

Default Making a bootable dvd

Hello smh,
thanks for your replies, but when I use Nero to burn it or even burn it as
an iso using PowerIso it doesn't boot. My system does not recognise the dvd
as a bootable device, even tho I have cdrom in BIOS as bootable.
Thanks

But if his data is already an .iso file wouldn't he just need to burn as
..iso. The bootable stuff is in the .iso file as it would have to be.

I royally misunderstood your question. Thought the .iso was already
bootable. If the .iso is that of Windows program, you don't want to make
it bootable because 'bootable' runs in DOS. What kind of program is in
the .iso? Perhaps you are thinking of Auto Run?

Default Making a bootable dvd

Hello smh,
hey, no problem about misunderstanding me, your'e not the only one, lol.
The iso is a windows app/program which I want to install on a free partition,
and is about 2.3Gb in size. It has a boot folder included in the iso plus
others when I view it in PowerIso.

Thanks

Hello smh,
When I load the said iso file into PowerIso, the option to add boot in formation
is greyed out, so I assume that the iso already has boot information , because
it has a boot folder, but then I am not sure if boot info is in that folder,
as I don't know what boot info is required.

Sorry for the confusion
Thanks
