    win xp pro is already bootable, i assume its an image file, so burn it with nero as other>image then simply reboot with the cd in the drive...

    have you set your machine to boot from your cdrom drive, for by that it should be booting to the cd if your boot sequence includes the cd-rom drive before your hdd, anyway, could be a combination of things here, one of which is the fact that its not bootable, im not too sure...

    you can change the boot sequence in the bios

    U need to change your bios settings to allow the comp to check for a bootable cd first.. then your HD.

    If thats ok, get the xp bootdisks: http://www.bootdisk.com

    Make sure your burning an actual image and not just burning the raw data to the disk.

    yea ive done that a couple of times, burning as data i mean, it doesnt work, it just is like burning movies on a data cd.
