Many people asked me how to burn the cd or dvd from ISO files downloaded from MS site for software installations….
"Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools"
Download rktools.exe and install it.
Steps to burn an ISO-image
To burn a CD/DVD from an image file when a drive letter is assigned to the CD/DVD burner type the following at the command line:
cdburn.exe d: c:\your_iso_file.iso for CD ; use Dvdburn.exe For DVD.
Output similar to the following is displayed:
Number of blocks in ISO image is 2a4e2 – 100.0% done
Finished Writing Synchronizing Cache: burn successful!
Notes: The drive letter assigned to the burner in this example is D and the image file being written is located at c:\iso_2003.iso The default burn speed for this tool is 4x with the maximum burn speed being determined by the speed of the burner. Use the speed parameter to set the burn speed. The max parameter sets the burn speed of the CD/DVD burner to maximum.
