what is the size of the .iso  .. you may need a larger DVD i.e. a DVD-9 if it is over 4GB

@ ihab

Can you try to read the file through Power ISO and from there you can write a CD/DVD or you convert it to various formats if you want, sometime Nero do not recognize ISO format and throw error,

Did you try in any other CD/DVD Writing softwares, Like Roxio, 123 Copy DVD, 1 Click DVD Copy, etc..

As far as I know Power ISO will open all type of media files, I guess the file you downloaded from IBM may be corrupted, Can you download afresh copy of the same and give a try if possible ?

I will also search and come up  with some idea that how can we make it possible ?

But I can extract it normal with winrar or power iso

what you could try is to make the bootable usb yourself.. format the usb and then extract the contents of the iso to the usb key and try booting from it.

Extract the ISO file to a folder through WIN RAR, and then use ImgBurn to convert the folder again to ISO, can you try this way ?
