Hi, we have access to microsoft licensing site to download files,
at the moment i need to install a 64 bit version of windows xp for a specific application
the licensing site does not contain any ISO images of the 64 bit operating system only for the 32bit

only file i find with the 64 bit version is a zip compressed .exe files called
"Windows XP Professional English #1 -2 x64 w SP2 MLF (X13-41611) X13-41611 561 MB EXE"
i have tried extracting it and burning, and also creating a iso to boot from vmware
However i am not able to boot from neither
i´ve tried various methods using a program called IMGburn but have been unsuccessful

how do i go about making this .exe file into a cd or an iso file to boot from ?
