How to Write Bootable Disk Images to a Drive in Nero

67

With Nero, you can create bootable discs, typically used as backup operating systems, so you can get into your computer if there’s a problem with the hard drive. Nero enables you to emulate a hard drive with your bootable disc, so that the disc becomes your new C: drive and all other drive letters are incremented by one. Note that to boot from a disc, you need to put your CD or DVD drive ahead of your hard drive in the “Boot Order” setting of your computer’s BIOS. You can usually find this by pressing “Esc” or “Del” as the computer boots.

Instructions

  • Launch Nero and Click “New” to start a new compilation.
  • Select “CD” or “DVD” as appropriate from the drop-down menu in the upper-left corner of the dialog box. Then scroll down the list and click the relevant boot option, for example “DVD-ROM (Boot)” for a DVD.
