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.
