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.

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".

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?

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

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:
