When a computer is powered on, the BIOS ("basic input output system") has only a few commands available to it, and the main one is to search for a "boot device" - a storage device which contains "bootable files". The first device it finds with "boot records" is used to load the operating system.

Usually this is the C drive, but could also be a floppy, USB flash memory, or CD.

In order to get the boot records onto a device, a special option must be used when the device is formatted. This boots the boot records in a place where the BIOS knows to look for them.

So, a bootable file (or "bootable device") is a storage device which has been set up with these boot records.

How to make bootable disk with win xp.iso format?


to answer the first question an Iso file can be burned to disk using the iso
burning function that comes with most burning software. if this file is an operating system then it would automatically be burned as a boot disk and nothing else would be needed. However if this is say service pack 3 and its an iso format then even though your burning it using an iso function it would just be service pack 3 and nothing else a none boo table disk.

I have some problems on my pc, i want to make bootable pan drive


I have used a usbhelper software to make bootable USB drive. You can search internet for the bootable USB flash drive program for your computer. Once you have the program installed you can use the img file of the system CD to make the pen drive bootable. If you don't have the image file you could create one with ISO burning program like Nero.

Writing bottable disk


Here are the instructions, taken right out of Nero's manual for Burning ROM 8. page 42:

9.3 Creating and Burning a Bootable Disc
To create a bootable disc, proceed as follows:
1. Click on the New button in the main Nero Burning ROM screen.
�� The New Compilation window is opened.
2. If you want to create a bootable CD, select the entry CD from the combo box and the entry
CD-ROM (Boot) from the list box. If you want to create a bootable DVD, select the entry
DVD from the combo box and the entry DVD-ROM (Boot) from the list box.
�� The tabs for the bootable disc are displayed; the Boot tab is in front.
3. If the template data for the bootable disc should originate from a logical drive:
1. Select the Bootable logical drive option button in the Source of boot image data area.
2. Select the entry you want from the drop-down menu.
If the logical drive you want does not appear in the drop-down menu, the reason for this is
that the drive is bigger than the space available on the disc. Please note that for operating
systems as of Microsoft® Windows® 2000 you need to have administrator rights in order to
be able to access drives directly, which you will need to do if you are to create bootable
discs.
4. If the template data for the bootable disc should originate from an image file:
1. Select the Image file option button in the Source of boot image data area.
2. Click on the Browse button and select the desired image file.
3. Select the language that should appear while the system is booting from the Boot locale
drop-down menu.
4. Check the Enable expert features box and select the emulation type for the image file
from the Emulation type drop-down menu.
5. Select any other options required on the tabs (see New Compilation Window).
6. Click on the New button.
�� The selection screen is displayed.
7. Select the files/folders that should be written to the ISO part of the bootable disc and drag
them into the compilation area.
�� The files/folders are displayed in the compilation area and the capacity bar indicates how
much storage space is required on the disc.
�� You have now created the bootable disc and can start the burn process (see Starting
the Burn Process).
