    You didn't burn it right. You have to use Disk Utility to burn a mountable ISO.

    Also, I already answered this question the last time you asked it.

    Open Disk Utility. Click Mount (or the ISO if it shows up already). Then highlight the ISO in the left bar and click Burn with a disk in. Voila!

    I actually have the files I extracted from the ISO (I know... duhhhh....)... So if I remember correctly, to make it into a bootable image, I need to select "new image" then "dvd master." Once its done, then Burn..


    is that right?

    Um, no, you burn the ISO itself, and it will automatically "extract" itself to be bootable.

    Or your way might work. I never bothered with opening an ISO because it never worked before.

    Just burn the .iso AS IS. No opening/extracting/etc. You're just burning an image. Not a data dvd, an image. If you have Toast you can simply drag the .iso file to the Toast icon in the Dock and click burn.
