Dear friends !

I want to know that what files make a CD bootable. I have a CD of Windows XP Professional Edition and it is bootable. When I insert in the CD-ROM and it boots and gives the message...

Press any key to boot from CD...

The main question is that  if I only have the installations files for operating system then how can I make it bootable ?
