    i'm trying to burn a copy of vista. my computer with vista on it is kapoot but i have the serial number. so i downloaded a legit iso of vista onto my mac and i burnt it to dvd. however when i put it in my pc (my old one that can't handle vista and doesn't have a dvd burner (but i'm trying out the dvd to make sure it works when i install my new mobo)) it shows up as an iso file on the dvd. open the iso and everything is there but i need the dvd to be bootable, not a data disk....

    what do i need to do to create a bootable vista dvd?
