How can I create a .iso disc?

Hello, I currently have a .exe OS disc but it really does me no good when I have a formatted HDD. Is there anyway I can turn this disc into a .iso so I can boot up with it? Thanks

You can take any set of folders or files, and put them into a cd burning application (like IMGBURN) and create an image based on the files and folders. Then you can use this image to recreate a disc down the road.

However, you have to take special steps to make a cd image that is bootable. By default, an ISO file that just consists of a pile of files and folders will not be bootable.
