    How did you burn it to disk? Did you burn it as an image or did you make a bootable data disk?

    The .iso file should be burned as an image rather than dragged to disk.

    You'll need to burn another disk. Just take the original .iso file, select the "burn disc image" or "Burn CD Image" option in Nero. If you use this method the disc will be bootable and ready to use.

    You've made the CD bootable by choosing that option.

    Don't make it bootable, because the ISO image burning process makes it bootable by default. If you make it bootable yourself, you'll get the DRDOS screen.
