    After I wiped my PC I went to reinstall all of the software I had backed up however my backup of my OEM version of nero that came with my computer did not back up correctly so I have no nero.

    I never got a disk with the computer with nero on it, is there anything I can do as I don't want to shell out £50 for it.

    And I need a burning rom software as I have my win2k3 trial downloaded from MS ready to burn to disks.

    I am not sure. I'll have a look if not I could email them and ask if they can supply me with a disk.

    Good thinking batman I never thought of that. :p

    I believe so, according to the ms intsructions I download the 599MB installation file and burn the image onto 2 disks and yes I'll be putting it on virtual PC along with Win xp and win2000

    Then you could consider using daemon tools light to mount it into a virtual drive. Means you dont have to wait for a copy of nero. I use it if i ever need to install from an ISO file onto the same machine - why bother burning it, to leave the disc in the machine and run it, when i can just mount the iso and run with it. windows sees it as just another drive anyway.

    actually, i dont know about vpc, but im fairly sure that vmware allows you to mount the iso onto the virtual machine itself. wouldnt be surprised if you could do the same with vpc, thus avoiding the necessity of using daemon tools (although its still a very handy tool)

    I have never used either so either vpc or vmware will be a learning curve for me anyhow.

    Im pretty sure you can just capture an iso image with virtual pc, as Fergal stated, no need for disc or mounting tools :D If you need burning software, doesnt nero offer a demo of some sort?

    That's what I usually do, I mount the image in VMware instead of burning to CD.

    You could always buy a cheap DVD drive. Mine cost £15 and came with a copy of Nero 7
