WinIso

Don't know if this really fits here but I find WinIso is not trustworthy when it reports a DVD or CD as not bootable.

I just came here today looking for 'Winiso Trustworthy' - not really the right place because you're about sites here not the software, I think, right?

But FYI I have BartPE which some will know is a bootable disk that enables you to trouble shoot a machine that won't boot.

I put it in and asked WinISO about it and it said not bootable. I put it a broken machine and it booted. It is there now.

This is a significant problem. I ran through a bunch of disks using winiso to see which were bootable - OS disks - and now I can't trust any of the results.

You get that.

I am not totally sure if El Torito is necessarily that strict of a standard. Have you tried it with Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 DVDs, both 32- and 64-bit? Have you tried it with a genuine Windows XP CD? Have you tried it with various flavors of Linux installation and/or live CDs? Have you tried with UEFI bootable discs (which are a different boot format than El Torito BIOS boot CDs)?

Maybe it only works with boot CDs created with WinISO?
