I made the mistaking of using GParted to repartition my hard drive before making sure I have an OS reinstall disk ready. I have the iso somewhere in the hard drive.
How can I burn a DVD from this ISO, from the GParted Live CD?

Start Gparted-Live in X graphical mode (the default).
Gparted-Live provides you with a *Terminal , a Web Browser, and Network connectivity via the Network config icon (typically by using DHCP).
The first thing you need to do is establish a Network connection.
Next, install a CD/DVD burning CLI app. For your situation,
wodim can burn your .iso to an optical disk... In the browser, downonload
wodim .deb package from
Next, open a terminal, and run the following command to install it.
sudo dpkg -i wodim*.deb
To burn your .iso, you typically need to know the CD/DVD burner's device specs/ID. You can use
wodim --devices to find it, or, according to
As a special exception, the device specification can be -1 or just omitted, which invokes automatic guessing of an appropriate device for the selected operation
Also according to
If no speed value could be found, wodim uses a drive specific default speed.
To burn your
distro.iso to disk, run this command (speed=4 is just an example):
sudo wodim -v -eject speed=4 /path/to/distro.iso
Note: To find the distro.iso, you will need to identify and mount the partition on which it is located.., To list all partitions:
sudo fdisk -l
Next, you need a directory to mount it to. Make one in
To mount the partiton
/dev/sda1 (for example):
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /tmp/myiso
