3 Free Burning Tools to Create PCUnlocker Live CD

June 23rd, 2015 by Admin

PCUnlocker can be created with almost any program that supports creating a CD from a disc image. Begin with downloading the PCUnlocker program (ZIP file) and unzip that file to extract the pcunlocker.iso image. You can then burn the ISO to a blank CD using one of the three best burning tools: CDBurnerXP, ImgBurn or InfraRecorder.

1. CDBurnerXP

CDBurnerXP is a lightweight and easy-to-use CD/DVD burning software, which can burn data discs (CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray), audio CDs and disc images, as well as creating video DVDs from folders, and there are some small but welcome extras. Here’s how to create a PCUnlocker Live CD with CDBurnXP:

  1. When you first launch CDBurnerXP, you can select a list of actions from the start screen. To make a live CD, pick up the Burn ISO image option and click OK.


  2. Click on the Browse button to open a window where you can navigate to the pcunlocker.iso file. When you have selected the file, click on the Open button. You will now be at the same screen, but now the ISO you wish to burn will be selected.


  3. Make sure you have a blank DVD/CD media inserted and that your target device is set to the correct drive. Then click on the Burn disc button. CDBurnerXP will now start to create a PCUnlocker Live CD.

2. ImgBurn

ImgBurn is a straightforward disc burning utility that can be used to create, burn and check disc image files with ease. The program supports a wide range of disc image formats include .bin, .cue, .iso and .img and it can be used in a number of ways. Here’s how to make a PCUnlocker Live CD with ImgBurn:

  1. Start the ImgBurn program and select Write image file to disc.


  2. Now select the PCUnlocker ISO file by clicking on folder icon given under “Source”.


  3. Click on the big button at the bottom-left of the window to kick off the disc writing process. This will write the ISO image to your CD drive.


3. InfraRecorder

InfraRecorder covers almost any of your optical needs, including support for burning disc images, copying discs, creating quick audio CDs, writing video DVDs, erasing discs, and more. InfraRecorder is lightweight and decidedly bloat-free, and it’s even available as a portable app you can carry on your thumb drive to satisfy your burning needs no matter where you are. Here’s how to use it to create a PCUnlocker Live CD:

  1. When InfraRecorder opens click the Write Image button.


  2. Select the PCUnlocker iso image file and click Open.


  3. In the dialog box that opened, you may choose the settings for how to burn the disk. If you don’t know what any of the settings mean don’t change them and just click OK to start the disc burning process.


How to Burn ISO to Disc in Windows 10/8/7 without Any Software

December 2nd, 2014 by Admin

ISO files are frequently used to distribute CD or DVD images. For example, if you download a Linux distribution or WinPE image, what you’ll most likely download is actually a .iso file that needs to be burned to a disc. Since Windows 7, Microsoft has added native support for burning ISO image directly to disc without using any third-party tools. Here’s how you can burn ISO to CD/DVD from Windows Explorer or Command Prompt in Windows 10, 8.1, 8 and 7.

Option 1: Burn ISO to Disc in Windows 10/8/7 from Windows Explorer

In Windows Explorer, navigate to the ISO image file you want to burn. Right-click on it and select Burn disc image.


Windows Disc Image Burner will now open. You can choose which disk burner to use, if you have more than one, in the Disc burner drop-down list. Insert a blank disc in your DVD or CD burner, wait for a few seconds and click on Burn. If you check the “Verify disc after burning” option, it will verify the content of burned CD and ISO file which will require additional time.


After the burning process finishes, the DVD/CD tray will automatically open and you will see a confirmation message if the burning process was successful.

Option 2: Burn ISO to Disc in Windows 10/8/7 from Command Prompt

If the “Burn disc image” option is missing from the right-click context menu, you can also launch the built-in Windows Disc Image Burner from Command Prompt. Here’s how to burn ISO file to CD / DVD at the Command Prompt:

Open an elevated Command Prompt. In Windows 10 or 8, just press the Windows key + X to open the Quick Access menu and then click “Command Prompt (Admin)“.

At the Command Prompt, type the following command and press Enter.
isoburn.exe /Q [path to ISO file]


Disc Image Burner will launch. Insert an empty CD and click the Burn button to begin burning the selected ISO image file. If you want to verify the disc for any errors after burning, check the option labelled “Verify disc after burning” option before clicking Burn button.


Disc Image Burner (isoburn.exe) is available in Windows 7 or later version of Windows. For Windows Vista or XP, you’ll need to install the third-party application to burn ISO files, such as ISO2Disc, ImgBurn, etc.
