I have an old computer (HP D220 MT) running Ubuntu 12.04. I recently made a USB pen drive boot image (in case my hard drive crashes), but the BIOS won't let me boot from USB (booting from CD's/DVD's works fine). I can't directly create a CD or DVD as my computer can only read CD/DVD's (no write available).
If I copy the USB pen drive directories/files to a CD or DVD (on a different computer). Will my computer have a crying chance to successfully boot from this CD/DVD?
