    Hi !

    .iso Images are bootable by default. Do not create bootable disk. Select Burn Image to Disc option in your CD/DVD burner package. This option is available in Nero too.
    A lot of free image burning softwares available on the net. Make sure to burn .iso image as an Image only.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I think you are extracting .iso image.
    As I mentioned already in this thread of yours, .iso images are bootable by default. Do not extract .iso image. Just select Burn Image to Disk option in your CD/DVD package. It will create Bootable CD/DVD only.

    You can check this CD/DVD burning article to make sure you download and burn the ISO file as an image to the disk:

    Just in case the question has been misunderstood...

    A CD is made bootable by including two files, bootcat.bin and bootimg.bin. These are a catalogue file and a sector by sector copy of a boot diskette.

    Now on Linux CDs, you will see something called isolinux and indeed it will have a directory of that name on it. In there you will find boot.cat and isolinux.bin and various other files that it uses. Isolinux removes the need for the diskette copy.

    For more information about isolinux have a read of this

    assuming you are using windows go to cnet.com and download a free iso burner. From there you can select the iso image and burn it, it'll be bootable by default.

    Now you might need to go into your system bios (most likely F2 at the bios screen) and change the boot order
