    Have you set the computer to boot from the CD in BIOS? Is it an ATAPI compatible CD drive? Will it boot the disk in a newer computer?

    Did you just copy the iso onto a disk or did you burn it as an image file? For it to be a bootable cd it has to be burned as an image file. If your using nero start your program, click file, and "burn image".
