create a bootable dvd

Hello, I am having problems creating a bootable DVD

I am using Nero 6 Enterprise edition

I have my .iso and I follow the instructions to burn to DVD and create a bootable disk and that part works. BUT, when I put it in my pc and boot if just goes to command prompt

I have googled this and it seems I need to add a floppy image boot file to the iso make before I burn it in Nero.

Can anyone tell me where I get the boot image file from?

have you tried typing RUN at the command prompt ?

Have you set the bios to boot from cd/dvd first as opposed to the hdd booting first.

And as ├četa asks,what bootable dvd are you trying to make ?

Hi - sorry for the late reply. I did boot from cd in the bios and I finally cracked it with the help of Ultra ISO

I needed a .bif image that I had to extract from Windows xp disk...I then had to burn this with the .iso onto a cd to make it bootable

Hope this reply helps anyone who has the same problem
