    Hey, if I download a version of Windows XP with SP2 from the internet, and it is in an ISO format, how do I burn it to a disk that will be able to install Widows on my mac? Any help would be nice

    If you download directly from Microsoft or another e-retailer, they'll have directions for installing XP on your machine. If you are downloading from a torrent or warez site, no one here can help because warez is against forum policy.

    Assuming it's a legal copy of XP SP2 and it's in ISO format, then all you'll need is a program which can burn an ISO to CD. In Windows you can use something like Nero or Ashampoo. For OS X there's Roxio Toast.

    Regards.

    That's not a Windows XP iso. It's a service pack update.

    You can, however, download full operating system isos
    if you have a technet plus subscription.

    Server 2008 is available for download by anyone:

    True enough. I just did a quick 3 second search for XP isos on MS's page. I know that in the past you could download XP isos from them.
