Recently my friend sent me a copy of Vista as an iso and I can run it on VMWare perfectly and everything, it's a pretty nice-looking and rather stable system but when you add XP and Vista together you get a bit of lag even with 2gigs of RAM, an 8800 GTX and a 2.66GHz Dual Core.

The thing is my computer for some reason refuses to burn Vista.iso to a DVD so I need to find another way to upgrade and use it as my main OS. Is there any program that makes it so you can mount a .iso as the computer is booting up so as to act like there really is a disk in the drive?

Mind you, this will sound fishy, but it's not pirating, the Vista install has a 30 day trial and I intend on getting a Vista install coupon before the trial runs out.

Any help?
