Burning an ISO image on a Mac

Hi.

Can someone please give me the right instruction to burn an ISO file to a disc on a Mac.

I have downloaded a free 90 trial of Windows 7, but after burning it to a disc it states that there's no bootable info on it.

This is what is left after downloading it X17-59465.iso and it is 2.1 gb.

I right clicked and burned it at minimum speed.

Is this right?

Thanks.

If you double-click the .ISO file, the Mac should "Mount" it and display it on the Desktop as a DVD which you can then burn to an actual blank DVD.

When I double click it, it takes me to the unarchiver to extract it.

If I double click the .ISO file, it mounts it at the right of the Desktop and also opens a window displaying the contents. I can select all of the items in the window, right-click and select "Burn 9 items to Disc...". (It's actually a Windows 8 .iso file that I'm viewing and in OSX Mountain Lion.)
