    How to make the Bootable DVD or CD

    Unzipped, there should be an ISO image file (cd??????.iso). This can be burned to CD using whatever burner program you like, most support writing ISO-images. Often double-clikcing on it in explorer will pop up the program offering to write the image to CD. Once written the CD should only contain some files like "initrd.gz", "vmlinuz" and some others. If it contains the image file "cd??????.iso" you didn't burn the image but instead added the file to a CD. I cannot help with this, please consult you CD-software manual or friends.

    The CD will boot with most BIOSes, see your manual on how to set it to boot from CD. Some will auto-boot when a CD is in the drive, some others will show a boot-menu when you press ESC or F10/F12 when it probes the disks, some may need to have the boot order adjusted in setup.

    One you have ISO file in your computer, first step is to insert blank CD or DVD in DVD drive or you can use Re-Writable CD/DVD. Then Double click on image file(ISO, it will automatically open the new windows from that follow the instruction. You can use some other tools like Nero for this purpose.

    -> Click on the "New" button on toolbar or choose the "File > New > Data

    -> CD / DVD Image" menu.

    PowerISO window.

    -> Choose the menu "Action > New Folder" to create a new folder.

    -> Choose the menu "Action > Change Label" to change the default label.

    -> Choose the menu "File > Properties" to set the iso file properties.

    -> Click on the "Save" button on toolbar, or click on the "File > Save As..." menu.

    -> Choose the menu "Action > Boot > Add Boot Information" to load a
    bootable image file.

    -> Save the iso file to "Standard ISO Images (*.iso)" format.

    To make bootable CD, please burn the iso file to a blank CD / DVD
