How do you copy a bootable disc using Nero?

By shockwave ·
I'm using Nero Simply, how can I copy a bootable disc? Can I just copy the entire disc using imagedrive, or do I have to copy using bootable disk in the data section when copying let's say, Windows XP Pro Installer bootable?
Hope someone would help with this.

When i need to copy a bootable disk, first i make a image of that disk on my hard drive, and then i burn that image on cd. There maybe some other way, but this one works for sure.

No matter how flashy the optical drives are (pun intended!) you can never guarantee that the read spead will be fast enough to keep up with filling the write-cache.

Optical drives tend to re-read some data bits occasionally due to misreads.

Burning, on the other hand, MUST be a continuous steady stream of data. To achieve that you MUST burn from a pre-prepared image on the hard drive.
