Windows doesn't like to be copied - something to do with piracy I think. Don't know why. The CD needs to be formatted with a boot sector and Windows system files need to be loaded into it. Also, to boot from a CD you need to adjust your BIOS so that it's boot sequence is to look to boot from a CD before a hard drive.
