You should be able to access the host machine's CD/DVD writer from
within VirtualBox. On the Details tab, double click CD/DVD-ROM and
then select Host CD/DVD Drive. Checking 'Enable Passthrough'
should mean that you can write from the guest system's normal CD
If that doesn't work, set up a shared folder, copy the iso out to it and
burn the disk in the host system.
