Default How do you know if this .ISO will work?

is there a way to test and see if a .iso will work, before i re-do my comp?

edit:
alright, so if i went to nero and selected "Create Bootup Disk" and then choose "New" and dragged all my files over to the "New Disk" and saved it as a .iso, then went into Alcohol 120% and selecte .iso and burned it, then it should work when i build my new comp?

I've seen this problem before, and someone posted the solution, I just can't remember what it was

And u do know that u are allowed to install the same copy of windows to only 1 computer.
