    Idiots guide to ISO and Bootable CD needed please!

    Please can someone tell me how to load this ****** programme onto a ****** CD which my ***** computer can then boot from in order to install the said prog??!!??

    I am close to the end of my patience with this. I have downloaded file, used IsoBuster to open it and view all the files, but I cannot burn a bootable CD.

    What do I need to put on the CD? In plain simple english for an idiot please.

    thank you

    Phan :cry:

    Why is necessary to boot off a CD to install a program?

    Normally this only done when you don't want to start the OS (as for imaging) or can't start OS rescure scenario.

    Do you mean you want the CD to autoplay when inserted into the drive?

    I recall MS Fscked the iso - LNM a special MS 'version' of ISO (embrace, extend,extinguish).
    - I had trouble with k3b/gnombaker, IIRC nero did it in the end, or maybe i converted it?. THere was a thread about it somewhere.

    To burn an ISO you have to use a burn from image file option in your CD writer program.

    You saved me a similar, but more polite response!!

    Seriously though peeps, in word of few syllables, what files from the MS Learning Network Manager ISO do I put onto the CD that I burn, in order to make it bootable.

    OK, just made sense of:

    Thank You very much - I had tried all sorts of different options, but had not seen that one - as I type, the machine is booting from CD and beginning install of LNM - my problems are only just beginning I suspect - but thank you again

    None taken, I was a bit rushed this afternoon.
    My recollection was that the ISO provided is not a valid ISO9660. Microsoft often are unable to adhere to known standards, or more likely they just slightly change the 'standards' so that they ensure it only works with other MS products.
    The thread I was refering to is here: http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...ewtopic&t=3059

    The general concensus was that you'll need another iso burning package because of Microsofts incompetence.
