  1. It's been a long day... of course you are correct. I will try that first. I don't have to set anything in the Advanced, Make Bootable area? That's really where I get confused - whether or not I need to set anything up there if burning from a Microsoft .iso file.
  2. The .iso image was downloaded directly as an .iso image. I'll try using Nero to just burn the image to CD and see what happens. Thanks again for your input!
  3. The iso that I have is one that I downloaded from our subscriber download area on the Microsoft volume licensing web site. Are you saying that I can essentially create a bootable XP CD, but then all of the installation programs will be for Windows 64? I did try running Setup after Windows was loaded, a 32-bit server version, and it told me that it couldn't run that version of setup. Again, I appreciate your input. I've been reading further, trying to get this going. I'll continue looking into it. Thanks again!
  4. Ok, thank you. Where I am still I guess confused is about getting the boot image. In the example for creating a bootable XP disk, where it is slipstreaming, you need to use the original XP disk. In this case, I am not slipstreaming, but I also don't have a Windows Server 2003 32-bit installation disk to get a boot image from (if I did, I wouldn't need to be creating the bootable disk). The last time I tried to boot fomr a bootable disk that I created, it didn't work, as it was missing the file NTLOADER I think it was. I have the .iso mounted in a virtual DVD drive, but it is on a Windows XP computer. I don't have any 64-bit computers running. When I look at the Advanced tab, there is the window "Extract Boot Image". Since I am trying to create a Windows Server 64-bit boot disk, using ImgBurn on a Windows XP computer, what entry to I make in this box? If you want to see a directory of the disk that is mounted in the virtual DVD drive I can send it to you.
  5. Hi, I am sorry to bother you again, but a quick question. I now have the .iso image of Windows Server 2003 x64 that I need to create a bootable disk from. Which guide should I follow? The XP or the Windows 7 instructions? I would guess the Windows 7? Then under "Sectors to load", what value - 8? Many thanks.
  6. I downloaded from Microsft the software to install Windows Server 2003, 64-bit. It is an .exe file. I ran it, it unzipped to a directory structure. I didn't see any instructions on creating a bootable CD from the image that I saw, for 64-bit Windows Server. I tried the Vista/Windows 7 instructions and I tried the XP instrctions, both failed. It is looking for NTLDR on boot, and I don't see that file. I have been trying to search on various combinations of the words "make bootable windows server 2003 64-bit" in the search box and nothign relevant has been returned. I have really tried using the guides and other online help. If I am just missing somethgin, can you point me at it? Many thanks.
  7. My apologies, in looking for specific tasks earlier, I somehow never went into this one. I stand humbled before you.
  8. Again, thanks for the info. I have unfortunately recently purchased a stack of 50 Memorex DL disc blanks, which are a name brand and which work fine when I copy DVD's with other software. So I at least want to try to make these work. I will try creating the disk on a different DVD drive. Related question, mostly for my information: There are options on the screen that are not explained in the guide. I have the Layer Break Position screen up. Under Options, there are 2 check boxes - Seamless and Don't update IFO/BUP files. What are these? Where can I get the info on how/when to use them? Also at the bottom left is a click box - Ignore Layer Break Options. What does this do, when it is used?
  9. OK, all appeared to be going OK, and I selected the "Excellent" location for the layer break, but it fails, apparently once it tries to start the 2nd layer. Before I waste another DVD blank, am I doing something wrong here? I 10:41:12 ImgBurn Version started!

  10. Damn, I shoulda thought of that. Many thanks!
  11. I use a program that creates .ISO files of movie DVD's, and I can play the .ISO files just fine using a utility that sets up a virtual DVD drive and I mount the .ISO file in the virtual drive. So I know that the .ISO files is not corrupt or anything. I am trying to burn the .ISO file to a DL disc, and I get the following message: Optimal L1 Data Zone Start LBA: None Found! (VTS_01) The image has not been mastered correctly for burning onto a double layer (OTP Track Path) disc. None of the cells meet the 'DVD-Video specification' criteria for a potential layer break position. Do you want to continue anyway? I've spent a fair bit of time going through the guide and the forums and I just can't find an answer as to what I should do here. If I continue, will the disc be readable in a regular DVD player for a TV? Do I ned to do somethign differently when I create the movie .ISO files? Thanks! To get the full log file, I answered "yes" to the prompt, but then aborted it right away. I 09:26:21 ImgBurn Version started!
