How to make bootable Avast! Bart CD-ROM

Recently my boss told me to buy the Avast! BART tool, a program that scans your PC for Malware and viruses when you boot from it.  I bought the software and then installed the Avast BART CD creator program on my PC.  When i run the program, it sucesfully creates a file called "BART"  which is an "ISO image file.

Now I have and use Nero Burning ROM software and I can make a number of different kinds of CDs, what do I select to make a bootable CD?  I have not been sucessful thus far and it is driving me crazy.

If you burn from an ISO image and the image is configured as a bootable system, the resulting CDROM will be bootable.  Nothing more needs to be done, so just choose the option to burn from an image.

File->open-><your iso image> and then burn.

The iso should be a bootable image already.  Your just have to make sure your pc is configured to boot from a bootable CD.

Try here :
http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd/
http://www.nu2.nu/bootdisk/cdrom/

You would also need this : http://www.nu2.nu/bbie/
This will help extract your Bootable image from ur XP CD.

Another method would be to use : http://www.nu2.nu/bfd/ and then make a bootable floppy image. Now fire up Nero and select BootCD from the menu and then browse to the image file created above. Now proceed to burn the ISO image after that. Now if your BIOS is set to boot
from the CDROM it shud proceed to boot from it with no problems.

However before you go through all of this trouble this is what i suggest. If your AVast Bart tool ran fine and created the ISO file make sure you burnt it properly and to a CDr and not CDRW. To burn the ISO file use Nero from http://www.ahead.de and then select OPEN and select the ISO file. Usually it will be in the same directory as the installed Bart program but you can confirm the location yourself. After that just select burn and you should have no problems at all. You migth wanna refer here for a similar problem to yours towards the end of the page.
