Default Burning XP OS to .iso then loading

sponsored links

Hi guys,
Have a little problem here. I downloaded Win XP Alien Spirit and after extracting the 43 .rar files i got one .iso file of about 4.3 gb. I then burned it at a very slow speed onto a blank dvd.
I put in into my desktop dvd drive and restarted but it WIndows simply starts up. I'm trying to get the dvd to boot up so I can install this new version over my current version of Win XP.
I'm hoping somebody can help me out with what to do next. Do I change some settings in the BIOS or what can i do with the iso file to start installation some other way? Or do I have to format my hard drive and then try from the dvd?
Hope you guys can help me out here...

Default ???

I'm asking a technical question here... not asking how to find pirated software and download. I have some software, and am asking how to install it. Whether it's pirated or not (not sure if it is or not as it is not on the market) is besides the question.
if you don't know the answer then go elsewhere please.

If I had an iso of my own win xp cd and wanted to install it then would you help me out or just keep quiet as you don't know the answer??


Sorry people, still looking for help on this issue.
