If the files are in a folder, go to the folder with Windows Explorer and select the Burn menu. Check (select) the choice to burn as a bootable disk.

Check the vendor site for an EXE file that you can download and run to update BIOS. That is how I do it on Lenovo machines and it is easier than creating bootable media.

You also have to set your machine to boot from a CD.

Put a blank CD/DVD into your Optical drive >> Select your Optical drive >>   Right click on Empty space in the Explorer window. Select Burn to Disc.

Here is an excerpt from Windows for Dummies that I used in past to burn disks.  I got Nero to burn disks and it works better if you need to do this. You may need to restart your machine to get a fresh burn cycle.


If you just want to copy files to a CD or DVD, perhaps to save as a backup or to give to a friend, stick around.

Follow these steps to write files to a new blank CD or DVD. (If you're writing files to a CD or DVD that you've written to before, jump ahead to Step 4.)

1.Insert the blank disc into your disc burner and push in the tray. Then click or tap the Notification box that appears in the screen's upper-right corner.

2.When the Notification box asks how you'd like to proceed, click the box's Burn Files to a Disc option.

Windows displays a Burn a Disc dialog box and asks you to create a title for the disc.

If the Notification box disappeared before you could click on it, eject your disc, push it back in, and have your hand ready on the mouse. (Alternatively, you can bring back the Notification box by right-clicking the disc drive's icon in File Explorer and choosing the Open Autoplay option.)

3.Type a name for the disc, describe how you want to use the disc, and click Next.

Unfortunately, Windows limits your CD or DVD's title to 16 characters. Instead of typing Family Picnic atop Orizaba in 2012, stick to the facts: Orizaba, 2012. Or, just click Next to use the default name for the disc: the current date.

Windows can burn the files to the disc two different ways. To decide which method works best for you, it offers you two options:

•Like a USB flash drive: This method lets you read and write files to the disc many times, a handy way to use discs as portable file carriers. Unfortunately, that method isn't compatible with some CD or DVD players connected to home stereos or TVs.

•With a CD/DVD player: If you plan to play your disc on a fairly new home stereo disc player that's smart enough to read files stored in several different formats, select this method.

Armed with the disc's name, Windows prepares the disc for incoming files.

4.Tell Windows which files to write to disc.

Now that your disc is ready to accept the files, tell Windows what information to send its way. You can do this in any of several ways:

•Drag and drop your files and/or folders into the drive's File Explorer window.

•Right-click the item you want to copy, be it a single file, folder, or selected files and folders. When the pop-up menu appears, choose Send To and select your disc burner from the menu. (The pop-up menu lists the disc's title you chose in Step 2.)

•Drag and drop files and/or folders on top of the burner's icon in File Explorer.

•From your My Music, My Pictures, or My Documents folder, click the Share tab and then click Burn to Disc. This button copies all of that folder's files (or just the files you've selected) to the disc as files.

•Tell your current program to save the information to the disc rather than to your hard drive.

No matter which method you choose, Windows dutifully looks over the information and copies it to the disc you inserted in the first step. A progress window appears, showing the disc burner's progress. When the progress window disappears, Windows has finished burning the disc.

5.Close your disc-burning session by ejecting the disc.

When you're through copying files to the disc, push your drive's Eject button (or right-click the drive's icon in File Explorer and choose Eject). Windows closes the session, adding a finishing touch to the disc that lets other PCs read it.
