I am trying to burn bootable CDs, but regardless of which software I use or which bootable ISO or NRG file I try to burn, the CDs will not boot on either my laptop or desktop.
I have tried burning these ISOs:
Windows XP Pro SP2 install (both an ISO and NRG)
BartPE Ultimate Boot CD
Gentoo Linux install
using these softwares:
My BIOS is set to boot from CD first. It makes an attempt but then quickly errors out. The most important one, Windows XP install, reports “Failed to load NTLDR”
I’ve tried every single setting I can and burned through about 30 discs. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG???
