ISO not bootable after burn:
I downloaded Fedora 17 Live CD ISO, and burned it using Nero 9 Essentials that came with my new Plextor DVD/CD Burner. I tried the Fedora 16 Live CD ISO also. Results were the same with both versions of Fedora. It appears it just takes the ISO image file (.iso) and copies it to the CD. There is only one file visible and that is the ISO file. If I click on the ISO file, it opens the burn screen in NERO. If I try to boot to the CD, it only loads XP Pro 64-bit off of my hard drive. I changed the BIOS so it boots from the CD. Am I doing something wrong? Does the ISO file need unzipping or something? My UBUNTU Live CD or you can install from it has folders and files visible when I look at them using MY Computer. I am getting two different viewpoints in my research on this problem. Some say the ISO image file is always bootable and does not need to be unzipped or unpacked, however there are others saying you must unpack it first and they list free unzipping programs for Linux files. I look at the size of the file on the CD and it is about 648MB in size. If I need to unzip it first, then will it be larger than what will fit on the CD-R disc? What am I doing wrong?
