    That depends on what you mean. If you are intending to create your own DVD; meaning a custom PE recovery disc with your images on them see here. I prefer to make my own discs, that way they can be customized. As far as the imaging product, I fully trust Drive Snapshot (along with some tweaks). If you are not trying to make your own PE then I'd need a little more clarification, because there are plenty of applications that supply bootable recovery software; Macrium Reflect, Paragom, Shadow Protect, ATI, etc.

    You need ultraiso. With it you can open a bootcd ISO and add a "image file" then save it onto a blank DVD. The DVD will retain all the boot information and will bootup.

    For instance I use acroins true image. I use ultraiso to open up the true image bootcd ISO, I then drag and drop the image tib file into the ISO. I then save the new ISO and burn to dvd.

    When I boot up with the bootdvd, it loads the acronis GUI and I just browse to the tib which is on the DVD and restore it.

    I tried poweriso, but it doesn't save the "boot" info and won't make a bootable dvd. Ultraiso works everytime for me.

    @Cudni im using home premium x86. just now, when i start to take my system image, there is also burn dvd choice. That would be useful. Then no need to use 3th party image softwares.
