Is it an .iso image? If so just use nero and select burn image from the recorder menu at the top. Also, if you cant get it to start up, are you sure you have set your BIOS to boot from your CD/DVD drive?

an .iso is a type of image file. It doesnt specifically relate to boots, as it could be any type of program thats imaged, so it might not be bootable.
