To create a bootable disc, proceed as follows:
Click on the New button in the main Nero Burning ROM screen.
The New Compilation window is opened.
If you want to create a bootable CD, select the option CD from the drop-down menu and the option CD-ROM (Boot) from the selection list.
If you want to create a bootable DVD, select the option DVD from the drop-down menu and the option DVD-ROM (Boot) from the selection list.
The tabs for the bootable CD are displayed; the Boot tab is on top.
If the template data for the bootable disc should originate from a logical drive:
Select the Bootable logical drive option button in the Source of boot image data area.
Select the option you want from the drop-down menu.
If the logical drive you want does not appear in the drop-down menu, the reason for this is that the drive is bigger than the space available on the disc. Please note furthermore that for operating systems as of Microsoft® Windows® 2000 you need to have administrator rights in order to be able to access drives directly, which you will need to do if you are to create bootable discs.
If the template data for the bootable disc should originate from an image file:
Select the Image file option button in the Source of boot image data area.
Click on the Browse button and select the desired image file.
Select the language that should appear while the system is booting from the Boot locale drop-down menu.
Enable the Enable expert features check box and select the emulation type for the image file from the Emulation type drop-down menu.
Select any other options required in the tabs (see New Compilation window).
Click on the New button.
The selection screen is displayed.
Select the files/folders that should be written to the ISO part of the bootable disc and drag them into the Compilation Area.
The files/folders are displayed in the compilation area and the capacity bar indicates how much storage space is required on the disc.
Start the burn process (see Starting the burn process ).
You have successfully burnt a bootable disc.
