Did you just copt the ISO tyo disk ? you need some sort of burning software that allows to burn the ISO rather than copy. If that's done correctly all of the files will be expanded onto the DVD and it will be bootable.

If you use imgburn you can make it an iso and it's free.

Did you follow the steps? Also do you have the Server 2008 image saved onto your pc?

Doesn't Virtual Box allow you to mount an ISO to create a VM?

I use VMware Workstation and it lets you mount an ISO to create a VM (VMware Player has that ability too).

Yes it does you can just save it on your PC and load it into the VMPlayer/Workstation. But i think the problem he has is that it's not an ISO yet.
