    I have the vista 5270 iso file and I now need to burn the file to a dvd to install it. I have already gone through 3 dvds and none of them worked. By the way I have Nero 6. Please help.

    How exactly are you burning it? Did you select the "Burn Image" option and select the ISO, or did you just add the ISO like a regular file to a Data DVD and burn it that way?

    Yeah, NR is right, make sure you are using the "Burn Image" option, rather than just putting the .ISO on the DVD as the computer will only see it as a data file. Also ensure your BIOS is set to use the optical drive as a first boot device.

    As long as your drive can read them, you should be able to :)
