How To Make Bootable DVD

Click on Make Bootable DVD in Nero StartSmart.

Click the Add button in the Disc Content window.

Browse for the files you want to use and highlight them before you click the Add button.

Click the Close button after all files have been added to the compilation.

Click the Next button to continue.

Select a Boot Image that you want to use on your DVD

The two possibilities are:

a) Read boot disc in drive

Insert a bootable disc into the selected drive.

Click the Next button to make your disc bootable (similar to a floppy disk).

To create a bootable disc for your operating system, right-click your floppy disk drive in My Computer and select Format in the pop-up menu.

Make sure the option Copy system files is checked.

b) Use a standard boot image

In case you don't want to use a floppy boot image, or if you don't have a floppy drive, you can use a standard boot image.

The Nero installation contains an image of a bootable floppy disk which makes your disc bootable.

You can select a Boot locale which will prepare the appropriate country code page and keyboard layout for DOS.

Click the Next button after you have selected a boot image

Select the final burn settings.

(1) Current recorder

Select the recorder you want to use.

(2) Insert a Disc name.

(3) Number of copies

Select the number of copies.

(4) Verify data on disc after burning

Nero compares the burned files on the disc bit by bit with the original files on the hard drive.

(5) Select the Writing speed.

(6) Write Method

Select either Disc-at-once or Track-at-once.

Use Track-at-once when burning a multisession disc, otherwise always use Disc-at-once.

Disc-at-once: The CD/DVD is written in one go without deactivating the laser.

Track-at-once: Every track is written individually. The laser is turned off after every track.

(7) Determine maximum speed

A speed test is performed before recording.

Nero will determine the safest maximum speed for burning your disc.

A simulation burn will be performed to check if the disc is ready.

No data is actually written on the disc.
