Making a bootable DVD from my Windows XP iso download from MSDB subscription

    Question

  • I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question..   BUt I have an MSDN subscription.   I have successfully downloaded Windows 7 from the MSDN dowload page and then used a product called IMG Burn to extract and burn the wondows 7.ISO file to a DVD.  I reisntalled my Desktop PC with this BOOTABLE Windows 7 DVD.

    NOw am have downloaded Windows XP from MSDN but when I extract the .ISO file to a DVD it is NOT bootable.    What am I doing wrong and how can I create a BOOTABLE dvd from my Windows XP .iso download from MSDN

  • Don't extract the ISO. Burn a DVD from the ISO.
