  • Burning DVD's in WIN 7 verses Burning in XP

    I have only recently upgraded from XP to WIN 7 .

    I have just used the Image Software Boot-iT to burn Image Files to a DVD in WIN 7 . This is the first time I have done this in WIN 7 and I noticed that the files burned were bootable ones.

    When I have performed this operation in XP this did not produce bootable disks.

    Is this difference due to WIN 7 having the ability to make burned DVD's automatically bootable which XP does not ?

    You're using third party software to burn the discs, not the burning tools built into the OS. If the discs you burnt before were not bootable but the current ones are, then maybe you're burning different ISO images?

      Also, the in-built feature of burning for XP doesn't work with DVDs, if I remember correctly.
