    If you just put the iso file on a CD and burn it, you just have an iso file on a CD. The computer can't boot from that. You need to use Disk Utility to burn the file as a proper install disc, and I believe a DVD is necessary.

    (In case you don't know how...)

    I replied in one of the other threads you posted in.

    Posted a Youtube link on how to burn an ISO to disc which complements Darth.Titan's link.

    Can you post a screen shot of what the DVD+R contents look like when mounted under OS X?
