To create a bootable cd:

Also you can use Nero http://www.nero.com

Just create a new bootable cd with nero and then drag the files from the usb flash to nero compilation, then burn it.

If its windows follow these steps.

few steps to create a bootable cd with nero.

1. Install nero
2. Create a CD-ROM (Bootable)
3. Check the advanced settings box. Leave the values as they are (if it's a windows boot cd they must be changed)
4. The image should be C:\Archivos de programa\Nero\Nero 7\Core\DosBootimage.IMA (default)
5. Drag the files from the usb flash to nero compilation.
6. Burn it.
