CC- How do I create a bootable CD

The information in this article applies to:
Easy Media Creator 7

Applicable Operating Systems:
Windows 2000 Professional
Windows XP Home Edition
Windows XP Professional

How do I create a bootable CD?

1. Open Creator Classic

a. Double-click on the "Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 Home" icon on your Desktop.
b. Under the "Application" section, click on "Creator Classic.
c. Click on "File" and select "New Project". Choose "Bootable Disc".

The Choose Type of Bootable Disc dialog box appears.

2. In Emulation Option, select from the following:

a. Generate Image from Floppy: Select this option to create a bootable disc from a bootable floppy. To use this feature, you must have a bootable floppy disk.
b. Use Existing Image file: Select this option to create a bootable disc from an existing image file. To use this feature you need a bootable image on your hard disk. Click Browse to search for you bootable image.

3. Click OK. Follow any on-screen instructions that may appear.

4. When the Bootable disc project appears, use Creator Classic as you normally would for making a data disc.

Note: When the disc has been burned, take it to the system you want to boot from. Make sure it has bootable disc support enabled, insert the bootable disc in your CD or DVD drive, and reboot the system. If you are able to start your system from the bootable disc, you have successfully made a bootable disc.

NOTE: Easy Media Creator 7 only offers the option for "Floppy Disk Emulation (1.44 MB). No other emulation options are available.

I finally created bootable Cd from ubcd4win.iso, I downloaded from your side.I was using Roxio 5.1. It created two files one small ~2k and big one size of dowload. I burned big one to my CD and rebooted my PC from CD. Message was "Can not read from the disk. Press ctrl,del alt to restart". Any suggestion what is the problem.
Thank you

Recovery Console prompts me to enter Administrator Password. Documentation says, that if Administratot code not defined enter <Enter> instead. I am always getting Invalid Passwor message and cannot proceed.

If you try to use a CD that is different from the version of Windows that you have you will get this message. (example. boot from xp pro cd when you have xp home installed) The repair option in setup will not be available unless you use the correct disc as well.

Hope that helps
