Okay my father (in all his infinite computer wisdom) maintains that a boot disk for windows XP pro would not have to be an ISO file but I think the boot sector would have to be in ISO format rather than a regular CD file, can anyone settle this argument.

Why would you need a boot disk for XP?
If the XP Pro is a Original Genuine Microsoft cd and is Full Version then it is bootable.

My dad lost the CD about a year and a half ago and won't let me near his computer to make a new one.
