Since it's an 'iso', you don't need nuthin to make it 'bootable' -- its all in the .iso file.

I've been using ImgBurn for several years, DEFAULT everything..

Never had a 'bad burn'....

Just click the Upper-Left selection (pic-1) and browse to the .iso (pic-2).
He does the rest.

Be sure "Verify" has green checkmark. (pic-2)

Love the music at the end - don't let it scare you.

Oh, BTW, after the write, he "recycles" the DVD tray:
pops out, then goes back in.
Don't get nervous about this, because then he does the 'read', to "Verify".

Good luck.

Maybe that's why they get "bad" burns, and we don't....
Just noticed pic-2 shows me at 'Max' speed.

If you use a quality media for burn your image doesn't matter the speed or the software you are using...

I've always use medias from the best manufacturers: Tayo Yuden or Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.... and I burn always on top speeds: 16x or 18x and 20x... never lost a single disc...

I thought i'd post this to help anyone who might be either confused about what speed to burn CD/DVDs or who is having issues installing software. Although CD/DVD writers can write @ over 20x speed, it's not best practise to use high speed when burning large files (IMO 300MB+). It's best to use...
