Two days ago, I was thinking of trying out both Ubuntu 7.04 and Microsoft Vista Ultimate, so I went toubuntu-logo112[1] download the ISO from and MSDN. Naturally after that, I go on to burn the ISO into CD and DVD.

While I was burning my ISO files into CD/DVD, CDBurnerXP Pro kept prompting me that my disc aren’t blank. When I try burning my data files from hard disk, it works. So I thought, “Why not I try to mount the ISO and burn the files from the Virtual Disk?”. So I went ahead with that idea.

Sadly, I can’t boot any of them. After a long period of trial-and-error, I decided to install Nero and burn the ISO directly. It works! Most importantly, not only successfully burn the ISO but it can boot from the CD/DVDs.

So the moral of the story, don’t burn your bootable programs from Virtual Disk. It won’t work. 🙁

    Nero and Alcohol 120% imo, are the best programs for disc-images burning.

    hehe, Ubuntu rules btw.
    Vista is too laggy… used it for some months and got back to XP.
