If your machine has a DVD writer, they will all be DVD's. The first one is bootable. Older thinkpads used CDr's.

First one bootable - ok.

But ... There is a message at the start of creating the set which says DIsk 1 cant be a dvd - did I read that wrong then?  All can be DVDr you say?

Perhaps they (Lenovo) have done something with their setup. A DVD writer will write both CD and DVD, so get a blank CD and try that.  ... Thinkpads_User
