Windows 7: Windows 7 DVD Not Booting

Windows 7 DVD Not Booting

Hey guys,
I burned the .iso windows 7 file onto a Sony DVD using Active@ ISO at 4x burn speed. Everything went fine with the burn and then i put my dvd burner (HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H31N) as the first in my bios and then restart, but then it doesnt boot...
I dont think the DVD is the problem as i put it into my mac and it shows the 2.36GB that the windows 7 .iso file is supposed to be...But intrestring enough it doesn't show in vista and everytime i click on the dvd the computer freezes up.

Also i tried a dvd earlier and it booted up but it didnt work (i didnt realize that the dvd was only 702mb...)

Any help? Suggestions?
Thanks guys, appreciate any help.

I'm with Doc: Download ImgBurn, and use that, with 'Verify' checked.

Also, you must use "Write IMAGE file" in whatever burn-program you use.
(Top-Left in Doc's pic.)

The fact that Vista freezes up would indicate to me, a bad DVD, for one reason or another: Hidden boot sector, boot catalog, whatever...

Lastly, simple DVDs are on the order of about 4.6 GIGAbytes.

Simple CDs are around 640-700 MEGAbytes, so you may have a misunderstanding there.

On a personal note, I avoid all Sony magnetic media.

Your BIOS must be set to boot FIRST from CD/DVD...
