Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sure, but you don't need to purchase one.

Just use something like ImageBurn to make and ISO.  Then if you want, you can burn as many copies from that ISO as you want to.

One suggestion would be to burn back at the slowest speed possible.  When I did it at a faster speed a couple of times, I didn't get a good disk.

When I did it on the slowest speed it was perfect.

Nero would be one you could purchase.

There is no kind of copy protection on Windows Server install disks.
