  • You don’t have to select “bootable DVD from ISO” option just select burn images to a DVD option.

  • Yes. It is a big file.  You need to have enough storage space on the DVD.  What is the storage capacity of the DVD?  Try with 4.7 GB disk.

  • DVD has enough space it can hold upto 4.7GB..the ISO image is of 2.7GB(I burnt the ISO image to DVD, but offcourse it is not bootable :), so space is not an issue)..the problem is when i open NERO->click on create bootable DVD from ISO , and then when i try to drag and drop the ISO file in the file area it says the size is large..may be that i am not doing it right..can you suggest the exact steps how to create a bootable DVD...

  • I had the same issues but ended up just burning the .iso to a DVD-R (not a DVD+R) and it boots ok but apparently is 64 bit.

    Where can I find a downloadable Windows Server 2008 .iso that's 32 bit(i.e. x86) right ?

  • Hi,

    I am trying to install Windows Server 2008 R2 (64bit) in Dell Laptop.

    This laptop supports 64bit, Virtualization etc.

    I downloaded Windows Server 2008 R2 iso image from MS site. Burned .iso image into DVD using Roxio in Windows vista 32bit system.

    Now I am trying to boot my laptop from this DVD and unable to do so. I have changed boot sequence to try first from DVD.

    I also tried with another dvd where extracted version of iso image is burned, same result.

    Can someone please help me, what I am missing here.

  • I used Imgburn tool to burn the .iso file and automatically created bootable version. I managed to successfully install Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Dont forget to activate it within 10 days. In order to activate leave the product key field blank and click next. It will automatically activate it for 180 days.
