Should ask you at one pint if you want to leave the disk open to add more stuff or close it and for a boot disk you HAVE to close it

just did it and it never asks me to close it and theres no button to do it so maybe im using the wrong button in nero i just used "burn image to disk" but theres another button that says "make udf/iso cd" could it be that one instead?

give this a read and see if you're successful at burning your iso and creating a bootable cd: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/nero6.html

The moderators might want to move this to Operating Systems.
