I have a windows 2008 disk that is bootable, I also have a 2008 iso which is not bootable  I want to create an iso from either one using cdburnerxp. I have looked at the links but am still having problems. It keeps telling me boot options could not be set. I need a step by step guide

It's simple, after installation.

1. Insert CDROM/DVD ROM Media  into CDROM DRIVE
2. Right Click CDROM/DVDROM in Windows Explorer
3. Select Create Iso/Image
4. Specifiy folder and file name
5. Click OKAY.
6. DONE.

It keeps failing on the disk writing it to an iso. the disk is working ok and boots and loads windows but does not allow me to burn to an iso. As mentioned I have a working iso but it is not bootable can you tell me how I can create a bootable iso image from this iso?

If you cannot read from the ISO, the disk is faulty, or has dirt on it.
