    Hi everybody,
    I was wondering if, and how, it is possible to burn a "Bootable DVD".

    I travel quite a lot, and thus the need to carry with me a system disk (it saved my life a few time :).
    Since i do not want to take the risk of losing my original, i've always made copies. So far, since the system was on a CD all you had to do was to make a bootable CD (that i know how to do ;).

    But my brand new 17" came with a DVD! In a way it's great, but then again...
    I looked thru the Disk Copy help, and Roxio Toast Titanium (which Does Not do it) but so far found nothing...

    So i just made a simple copy... but it won't start from it. It always hang up at the very start.

    Any ideas?

    Any help will be more than wellcome (i'd hate to lose my original DVD)

    In Disk Copy use "New->Image from Device" with Image Format set to DVD/CD Master. Then use Disk Copy to Burn the image on to a blank piece of media.
