We have already blogged that how we can create a bootable DVD of Windows Vista and Windows 7 using WAIK(Windows Automated Installation Kit) as Microsoft does. WAIK is specifically targeted to Windows Vista and Windows 7 and nobody likes to download such a big Toolkit to create just a bootable DVD. Today we have come with a simple and straight how-to guide, which explains how we can create bootable DVD of Windows Vista/7 using Nero burning software. (We are using Nero because it is one of the popular CD/DVD burning software and can be available easily. You can grab the Trial version of Nero official website.) Requires: Windows Vista/Windows 7 Installation Source Files Blank DVD and Nero. How To: 1. First of all, install Nero and prepare your Installation source files by copying them to particular folder or directory. Lets say- all files are copied to C:DVD folder. 2. Start Nero Burning ROM (Go to Start >> All Programs >> Nero >> Nero 9 and click on Nero Burning ROM). On New Compilation dialog box, Select DVD as compilation and then DVD-ROM (Boot).
