I do that and click on burn image. But when i go and select the image and click on open it just opens up that windows file with all the little files rather than selecting the entire file.
That sounds to me like you have a windows-based self-extracting archive file?! What extension does the file you are trying to load into Brasero end with? In fact, what exactly is the file name you are trying to open?
If it is a self-extracting archive, then you have to first find a way to extract all the files to a folder. Burn that folder to an iso file and use the iso file to burn a new cd/dvd.
More information (detail) required!
BTW, this does not sound totally 'legit' to me?! Sorry if I am wrong but if you are trying to create a "free" version of Windows, I don't think we should help. I think you should explain more!
