Copy or Burn an iso

I have downloaded PC LoginNow iso image.
I am not sure if I need to burn it to a flash drive or just copy it.
I will reboot another pc with the flash drive.

so is copying iso or burning iso the same?
thanks

If that is a Linux iso, you can try using unetbootin to create a bootable USB stick:

But it doesn't work with every distro.

Try Roadkill's DiskImage: http://www.roadkil.net/program.php/P12/Disk%20Image

It's a self-explanatory, very small free program. Just make absolutely sure you do select the correct target drive, i.e. it actually points to your USB flash. If incorrectly set, you could overwrite the contents of your hard drive.

you will need a program like 7zip or winrar or winzip to extract the contents of the iso to a folder then copy the contents to a fat or fat32 usb stick or use roadkill as described above

You need to make sure the iso is bootable first. Download magic iso open the iso image, it will tell you whether it is bootable or not (see screen dump), if it is not you can insert a boot file image (you can get this from any windows disk that is bootable and extract it once the target iso is also windows) you can also select to burn iso image to CD. Download for magic iso http://www.magiciso.com/ 
Best of luck

jskfan--I think I would just burn an .iso CD/DVD disk from the downloaded PC LoginNow .iso image.
There are many burner programs but I use ImgBurn.

Burning an .iso image is not the same as copying the .iso file.  In ImgBurn you would choose the "Write Image File to Disk" option on the first ImgBurn window.
