I have a vista downloaded copy, but rather then three vista install files, I have all the extracted folders and setup.exe.bootmgr and autorun files on root drive, whaat I did is I created a Iso file with all these files, and did try to burn the iso on a dvd disk, when I did this, it burnt as vista ultimate and can run the setup from the windows, but when I try to boot from the disk, it does not boot, staright comes to windows menu to choose OS to boot, my First boot device is DVD. I have burnt 4 dvds and none of them worked, even I copied boot files from a bootable vista and copied on the root folder and create an iso image and did try to burn that one, still no luck, I did try to run the iso from my virtual drive for my virtual PC,had no luck either.

Now Could any one tell me what should I do to get a bootable iso, or how can I burn a bootable Vista Ultimate DVD from the extracted folders and files that a DVD actualy contains. I have found some where in internet saying magic iso can create a bootable iso, for that it needs to add a boot image along with the vista iso, and burn the combined image as a single iso, that should work as a bootable vista, didnt work for me. do any one know which one is the boot files for vista, which one should I add as boot image?

I am trying to figure this out for last couple of days, no luck yet. could any one help me please.

Thanks

Hello,
You downloaded Vista from the internet?
That would be stolen property wouldn't it?

Vista IS available as a legal download at a few sites.

Can you provide us with the download link you used to get your download? It may help to determine the problem.
