This CD is functional with windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/7 and linux (but not Mac).
Types of CDs that I have tested (with success): CD Re-Writable (700mb) and DVD+R (4.7gb).
If your computer does not boot from the CD automatically, then you will need to enter the boot selection menu and choose the one that has either 'CD', 'CDROM' or DVDRAM (or something similar) in its name to boot from the CD, like shown in the video above. The key on your keyboard that you have to press to get to the boot selection menu varies depending on your computer. The key on my computer is F8 but it may be different on yours. The key for your computer is often shown at the bottom of the first screen that appears when you turn on your computer; something like: Press 'F8' to enter boot menu. You may also need to change the boot order in the bios so that your computer trys to boot from the CD before the hard disk (operating system). Click here for my tutorial on how to do this.
