Why the burning application does not think it is not an iso, is becuase
it is an iso image of bfs. If you are able to boot beos at all, you can
try to mount the image:

mount imagefile mountpoint

Now you can see that the image file is a complete bfs image, thus does
those applications that tries to analize the content of the image does not
know what it is and think it is not a valid iso imate. Just try to
burn the image as raw data, and you will probably be fine.

I have no knowledge about windows or windows applications, so I am 
no help there.
