CDBurnerXP: Copy a Bootable Disc

📅 2010-Feb-14 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ cdburnerxp ⬩ 📚 Archive

A little care is needed when making a copy of OS installation discs. Making a normal data copy does not copy the boot data and renders the new disc un-bootable. To create a bootable disc copy of a bootable disc using CDBurnerXP:

  1. Put the original bootable disc in the drive. Use Copy Data Disc with the destination as your harddisk. This creates a bootable ISO copy of the disc.

  2. Put a blank disc in the drive. Choose the Burn ISO Image option and use the bootable ISO created in the above step.
