    Using NERO will work:

    File>Open>Select the ISO and click Burn.

    If it doesn't boot then you must've downloaded a pirated version as the official MS images work fine.

    this tool is very useful

    great tool!!!

    small...install the program, all your iso's turn a cute little iso icon, right click that cute iso icon, it says on mine "send image to cd",

    hope it works

    I've had numerous problems burning OS ISO's using NERO. (No offense Admiral Michael) I've used Alcohol120 just in case you have problems with Nero.

    Cool.. Thanks dreamliner77for the img.burn.com link. It looks promising.

    btw, if you want a virtual cd drive on Vista the current recommendations are VirtualCloneDrive and MagicDisc. MagicDisc is free, but VirtualCloneDrive has better results with more recent builds of Vista apparently.
