Actually, I rip all my CD's to .iso using dd and I've never had one fail to boot when I burned the
.iso back to a CD. It's a bit for bit copy. Why would it not work?

Every single image in that directory has been burned to a CD-RW at one point or another and always booted flawlessly. They were _all_ ripped using dd from originals either pressed or burned.
