YOU will need something like power iso ,however im not sure why you want to bother burning to a dvd, use power iso to load it in a virtual drive then install it from virtual drive

No, that would only work for a game meant to run on your PC. You'll need any burning app (the built-in one is extremely limited for functionality, hence the reason most of us don't use it), like CDBurnXP, ImgBurn, etc. Those apps will be able to take several image formats and burn them to disc for you.
