If you check the screenshot on Power ISO's website, the bottom left portion just above the status bar shows if the image/disc is bootable

BUT...if the ISO isn't bootable then you're stuffed. An ISO is just a disk image so you will need to get a bootable ISO file or find out some way of modifying an ISO to make it bootable.

When you wrote the ISO to the disk did you write it as a file or as a disk image? To find out, pop the disk in the drive and open it with Explorer. If you see the ISO file then you wrote it as a file (wrong!), but if you see the ISO file contents then you correctly wrote it as an image. If you write a bootable disk with the ISO file then that won't work.
Thankx for the the info.....Well i burnt it as a Disk image but i guess because it doesnt have a bootable file (.bif) thats why it doesnt work,OO...Nero burns bootable disks?? what version?? and do you have to locate the boot file and add it when you are using nero?
