Making Bootable Installation CD

Hi there,

I just need some suggestion on making Bootable Installation CD. I have windows installation files, but when I copy onto CD, I would like the CD to work like bootable installation CD so that Installation starts when I start the PC.
Nero let me make only the bootable CD but not the Bootable CD with Installation Autostart.

Any help, suggestions or tools will be highly appreciated.

Hi I have never found anything better than XXClone for making an exact copy of your OS and a bootable disc without hardly doing anything at all. Go to their website and have a look. It is a free version,if you have two hard drives it is fantastic program. You can make them both bootable and to complete my whole XP system took about 35 minutes and the bootable disc took about 4 seconds. Mind you that was on a floppy disc. Look here click here

My suggestion is Vlite at click here which is the Vista version of Nlite (XP).

Worked great for me.
