How to create a bootable DVD from ISO file

Windows 2012 ISO image in Magic ISO SoftwareHi,
  I have downloaded Windows 2012 Server in ISO format. How do I create a bootable DVD so that I can stick the DVD into the server to begin the installation?
  As you can see, I have Magic ISO maker.

Thanks.

There is nothing special to do. Just burn your iso file, it will boot up.

Burn Dialog window
When I try to burn, like seen in above, [Burn it!] button is recessed. I have downloaded a trial version of Magic ISO Maker months ago. Has it expired?
If that is the case, do I have to pay to keep this one or is there a free software that I can dowload?

You need a tool that is capable of burning iso files, which most are. I use infrarecorder. With that tool when you start it, select "Write Image", and then select the iso file and burn away:

If you use another tool for burning, look for a similar option like "Write Image".

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

It seems to be expired.

Just for burning iso files to a disc you don't need to buy a software, there are multiple for free. rindi told you one, I use imgburn sometimes

Get free burner. I can recommend XP burner which if free and easy to use.
When you stat is just choose burn iso, set path to desired iso file and burn it.
That's all, in few minutes you have bootable dvd woth your win server

Just for your info, you could also create a USB stick with the installation files on it, that way you don't need to burn a DVD. You could do that manually as explained in the Link below:

or use a tool like this:
