the ISO file has to be burned on the CD, usually new cd burning software will identify automatically and burn the iso into a bootable cd.

Windows Vista is the name of the upcoming release of Microsoft Windows, a line of graphical operating systems used on personal computers, including home and business desktops, notebook computers, and media centers. Prior to the announcement of the Vista name on July 22, 2005, it was known by its codename Longhorn. As of October 2006, Windows Vista is at release candidate stage; Microsoft has stated that the scheduled release dates for Windows Vista are currently November 2006 for volume license customers, with worldwide availability following in January 2007.[1] These release dates come more than five years after the release of Windows XP, Microsoft's current consumer and business operating system, making it the longest time span between major releases of Windows.

According to Microsoft, computers which can run Windows Vista are classified as Vista Capable and Vista Premium Ready[32]. A Vista Capable or equivalent PC needs to have at least 800 MHz processor, 512 MB RAM and a DirectX 9 class graphics card, and will not be capable of supporting the high end Vista graphics, including the Aero user interface. A Vista Premium Ready PC will take advantage of Vista's "high-end" features but will need at least a 1.0 GHz processor, 1 GB main memory, and an Aero-compatible graphics card with at least 128 MB graphics memory and supporting the new Windows Display Driver Model. The company also offers a Release Candidate of Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor[33] from its Web site to determine the ability of a PC to run Vista in its various guises. The utility only runs on Windows XP.
