I have an ISO that was created with CTUpdate. I'd like to burn it with ImgBrun and make it bootable.
The iso has in it:

Autorun.inf

What do I need to do in ImgBurn to make it bootable?

Thank you,

Docfxit

Follow this guide and, after step 4, look at the File Sys field: if the image is bootable it'll say ISO9660 (Bootable) in this field.

You don't make an existing ISO bootable, you create a new one and make that bootable.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

Thank you for the reply. Mine says ISO9660, Joliet.

When I try to boot from the CD it goes straight to the hard drive. When I start the laptop I select an alternate boot device (CD). It doesn't ask me to press any key to boot from the CD. I can boot from an XP Pro CD without any problems.

After I select an ISO image.
Since I made this CD I did go into:
Mode,
Build,
Advanced,
Bootable Disk,
Added a check mark in Make Image Bootable,
Changed extract boot image to CD,
Clicked on the Diskette to Extract Boot Image,
Told it where to save it.

What I don't know is how to handle the Boot Image or what to select now.

Thank you,

Docfxit

And how would a person go about doing that?

Thank you,

You extracted the boot image from which disc? XP Pro? I'm asking because XP Pro's boot image only boot a XP install CD, nothing else.

How is the CTUpdate thing supposed to work? You boot in DOS mode and run it? Or something else?
