    Default Burning A Bootable Disk

    Hello Guys
    New to this Forum, long time i have been looking for this. Googled a lot about burning a bootable disk & also searched in youtube. But so far was not able to burn a bootable one sucessfuly.

    I wanted to burn both XP SP3 (Modified Version) & vista ultimate (Modified Version). Having ISO file of both these.

    You people must be well versed in this and could be able to solve my problem. If this topic is allready covered in the topic kindly adrees me to the same.

    I am using Windows 7(7100) 32 Bit and i use Power2go 6 for burning disk.

    Windows XP and Windows 7 .iso files are already bootable. You just need to burn the .iso file using the .iso/image burning option of P. If you can't find it, then try ImgBurn. It's a freeware image reader/builder/writer software with only 2 MB file size.

    Are you planing to create a single bootable disk with both Windows XP and Windows 7 ?

    as archer said these both images are already bootable.

    just burn using any free program.

    Thanks guys for the information.
    @Archer- Wanted to burn 2 different bootable disks.
    What does "burn the .iso file using the .iso/image burning option of P" means.

    If its an ISO file then when you click on that file you can see a Burn Option as shown in the picture below its Power2go 6, click on that icon it will ask for blank disk and will do the job.



    Either open Power2go 6 and click on Burn Disk Image, it will ask of the file just browse and select the ISO image.

    OR Select Following from the Power2go 6 main menu

    Burning >> Burn Disk Image

    Want to insert Windows-7 Loader into the win-7 ISO file and burn that into a new DVD. May be this is possible with Magiciso but is there any other way to do this, i mean with daemon, winrar, burning tool (Power2go) or any other simple way.

    You need a software which can edit .iso files. But most/all of them are shareware.

    Examples

    • Nero: Trial version for 15-30 days
    • ImToo ISO Studio: Demo version can only create 3 ISO files
    • PowerISO: Demo version has 300 MB file size limitation
    • MagicISO Maker: Demo version has 300 MB file size limitation
    • UltraISO PE: Demo version has 300 MB file size limitation

    Any other way like extract all contents into a folder and make that folder into an ISO file then burn that ISO. Because when you extract that into folder we can add as much file into that folder, but converting that folder back into ISO may be difficult part. I know this would be simple for you.
    Just let me know any ways for this.

    Yes that also works. You can extract the .iso file with Winrar, Winzip or 7zip. But it's hard to make the CD/DVD image bootable again.

    I use nLite for creating bootable .iso files of Windows XP and vLite should work for Windows 7. Both are freeware software for creating unattended installation of operating systems (nLite for XP and vLite for Vista).

    vLite needs extra runtime software like .Net framework (23-50 MB) and Windows Automated Installation Kit (1.3 GB). Check this page to avoid downloading the 1.3 GB WAIK file.

    Open nLite/vLite, click Browse and select the folder with the extracted windows xp/7 files select Bootable ISO (just ISO in vLite) button and make the .iso (change the label also).
