kelvin,
I can only speculate that you have installed an ill-behaved cd/dvd burn software (roxio is notorious) because you should be seeing exactly what Bare Foot Kid posted.

Hi Karl and Bare Foot Kid,

This is what I see. I guess I have installed something like express burn, but it was the link from Bare Foot Kid named imageburn free software (www.imgburn.com) on the previous post.

And again, I don't see the one which is the windows default. Is it because mine is home premium version?

Did you or did you not install ImgBurn?

On that same right-click list there is an option entitled "Open with.."

Click on Open With and send us that please.

Here's what I show:

Look at the "choose default" and show us what you see. Here's what I have:

Kelvin,
Under Choose default, show me what you have.

We are almost there to where that top item will be as it should be.

Hi Guys,

I think I have got it. I have installed express burn instead of imgburn, express burn is another freeware that is available on the net.

I have uninstalled it and installed imgburn. Now on my open with list, there are:

1) imgburn
2) windows disc image burner

excellent!

And now is Burn Disc Image the top item on the right-click list?

If not, then you can use "choose default program" to make the Windows Disc Image Burner the default.

and again Excellent!

Which you choose for the default is your choice, at least now you see that you can use the Open with to choose the "non-default" when desired.

Which ever program it is, most importantly, I like to thank you guys for the kind help and support. You guys seems more happier than I am when a problem is solved. Appreciate that man. Way to go. Cheers!

My next move is to burn the iso file to cd as bootable partition wizard and try to partition my os and data. I have never done it before, hope it works.
