Windows 7: disk format for burning bootable disks

disk format for burning bootable disks

On a few occasions in the past I have encountered random problems when burning bootable disks. If memory serves me properly, trying again with a different disk format has solved the problem. Imgburn is the program I use. I can't remember which disk formats caused me problems (R, W, RW). Which format is recommended for this task?

Thanks for your feedback.

Burning Windows 7 onto multiple disks
