Default Re: making an iso file bootable

If the ISO isnt bootable you downloaded a bad copy of the Vista ISO from the torrent site you found it on. Cause all Vista ISO's from the Microsfot official sites are all bootable.

So you either can use Daemon tools to mount the ISO image and then use VLite or pirate yourself a better copy of Vista.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Once you boot from the disk sometimes a board has an F8 boot menu to choose the boot device the installer should start up right away. With a beta release you will need to partition the drive/format to NTFS first.

try Active image burning software, or IsoRecorder, both great ones, I use ISORecorder more, but they are the same, i have just used it longer. i have only had one problem with ISORecorder ever, it was a problem with the way the ISO was encoded, it read it as a DVD image and said that it did not support DVD images, so i found Active ISO burner, and it worked fine, other than that, they are both great

ISO Recorder v 2
Active@ ISO Burner. Data CD DVD burning software. Write ISO image to CD,DVD,CD-RW,CDR,DVD-RW.

both work in vista
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"

whole story here:

BurnOn makes a disk bootable when burning an iso image to disk while others won't. Once you have a good iso to work with make sure that the program used creates bootable not simply data disks or plan to toss frisbies around.
