To burn bootable or full Image Disk on OS X using Disk Utility do the following:
 

1. Launch Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities).

 

2. Insert your blank DVD or CD.

 

3. Drag and drop your .dmg or .iso file to the left pane in Disk Utility. Now both the blank disk and the .iso/.dmg should be listed.

 

4. Select the .iso/.dmg file you want to burn to disc, and click on the Burn button. A dialog box confirming the destination (your blank CD/DVD) will appear, as shown:

5. Sit back and wait while your new disc gets written!

 

All disc will work across platforms.

you can use a similar method to this in Disk utility to write bootable ISO's to thumbdrives as well :) Physical media is dead, most new notebooks don't come with an optical drive either!

I was using it to make another Hackintosh. My parents had Windows and I had to switch them from Windows 7 to Mac OS X. Yea. I have a lot of computers I know. The pink mouse was bought by my brother's girlfriend, so hold the jokes. I literally started at it crazy for a few minutes when I noticed my Compaq mouse replaced.

Anyways, I'm about to get my Macbook finally that I won off eBay :)

 

I've personally used Hackintosh long enough.
