    What process did you use to burn this ISO to a CD / DVD? And where did you get the ISO? Microsoft or ??? That's the bit that sounds shaky to me.
    Cheers,

    Rick

      Where did you get your ISO image?
      What did you do with it once you got it?

        I have had no difficulty with ISO images supplied as part of Technet Plus, i.e. officially from Microsoft. Just use Nero or another burning program and select Burn Image.

        It is possible your DVD drive may not want to play images burnt on another drive.

        But, why do I smell a rat with this post?

          Yes, they do!

          As already said, you need to burn *as image* if using nero. If you haven't got Nero, a good free utility is Active ISO burner

          If the system you are booting from has Windows XP installed, even after changing the boot order to CD > HDD you will get the option at the bottom of the screen to press any key to boot from CD.
          If you do not press *any key* the current version of XP will boot.

            *U SMELL A RAT?!?!

            Whats the point of ISO Images...aint it a copy of an ORIGINAL CD. It doesn't take a genious to realise what you can accomplish with an ISO image. I was able to boot from the DVD drive via the BIOS setup utility...i used nero to burn the file to a CD-R...but i think the image might be faulty...any suggestion as to where i can get working images?

              Go to your favorite computer retailer and buy a copy.

              Define "genious" please. (the irony is killing me)
              The posts above give you the information you need to burn a working copy.... I really doubt you have a legal copy of Windows so I'm not going to give you any more tips.
