Specs: none, 2 gigs
Ok so I got this WIndows x64 disk on a dvd and I used Nero to burn it as a ISO and bootable disk...so when I put in the disk in this Brand new computer with no data on it instead of loading the installer it loads the DR-DOS...any suggestions? I dont have a floppy and I went into Bios and made it to boot from CD

When nero creates a bootable cd it asks for an bootdisk image if it is not pointed to one then it uses it's own - Dr Dos - you need to type in the dr dos command that runs the setup file - it is probably just a case of typing in setup.exe

If the ISO you have is supposed to be a bootable image, then you burned the disk incorrectly.

The above answer is correct as far as it goes--when you use your burner software to "make a bootable disk" it will probably use the DR DOS boot image by default, but---

if the ENTIRE IMAGE (ISO) is already supposed to be a "bootable image" then you are using the wrong procedure. When you "burn" an ISO to a disk, you don't copy the ISO to the disk, rather the ISO, together with the burner software, "manufactures" the entire disk, and when you get done, it will have the coorrect boot image.

Since I'm not familiar with whatever your software "is" I can't lead you through that.

as above stated, do not use the 'Make a bootable CD' instead use 'burn image to cd' if it is a bootable iso image.

I have not luck with Nero's 'DR-DOS' bootable image, it will not see my primary hdd partitions.
