Custom Bootable DVD

Hey folks,
Just needed some advice when creating a bootable dvd with a custom install.wim file. i have done my build and then captured my image with imagex. after capturing the image i am able to do my installtions via a usb drive and via a network share booting from a windowsPE disk.

The problem i am having is creating a bootable DVD. I would like to have DVD's on hand of my custom image. When i go to boot of the disk it does not boot from the disk. do i need to modify the boot file? I am not quite sure what i am overlooking. any and all help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

-Matt
