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.
