How to Make Bootable ISO on Nero

A bootable format is one that allows CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs to open up directly from a PC without the need for a hard drive. For this reason, creating software using a bootable ISO (International Organization of Standardization) system style format is functional. Follow the steps below to get the best of both worlds: bootable, independent files that come up and running quickly along with ISO structure for uniform, yet flexible formatting that spans across Windows, Mac and DOS platforms.
