How to Make a Boot CD With Nero 8
While previously only certain models of PCs came with CD burners, now every PC, with the exception of netbooks, comes with a CD burner. CD burners can be used to burn both audio and data CDs, as well as boot CDs. If you have Nero 8 on your PC, you may be looking to use the program to make a boot CD. Luckily, making a bootable CD is easy and only requires that you have a blank CD-R available for use.
Things You'll Need
- Blank CD-R
Insert a blank CD-R into your CD drive.
Click "Start > Programs" and select "Nero StartSmart." Nero will then open.
Select "Nero Burning ROM" from the Nero 8 application list.
Click the "New" icon on the Nero 8 toolbar.
Select "CD-ROM (Boot)" from the New Compilation window.
Select the "Image file" button and then click the "Browse" button.
Navigate to the location of your bootable image file and select the image. Click "Open."
Click "Burn" to burn the image. Note that the process may take a while to complete, so be patient. Once the disc ejects, you've successfully made a boot CD with Nero 8.
