I have the following burning programs at my disposal:

Alcohol 120%
Nero 7
ImgBurn

Which is the best?

I will also try the RAM Thing, but not until the morning...

Yes!

It ensures that all the data is properly burned. Very important for isos.

I had ImgBurn at 2x & with verify ON and it worked a treat because before that I had it up at the fastest speed wit verify off and it would boot from the DVD.

The machine does not have integrated Video...I will also try to do the USB Key...I'm gonna start with the RAM, and move down the road...

Wish me luck...
