I don't think that's necessary.
I don't burn DVDs anymore, so I did not personally test booting them
after burning to DVD, but I have booted the same or similar images from
the full official 7.0.0-live set successfully using kvm -cdrom
nameofimage.iso, which should behave identically to booting a correctly
burnt optical media.
When you report "Both the i386 Gnome and KDE versions refused to open
without a user password" please describe what happens when you boot each
of these two images, answering these questions:
Which boot option did you select?
In the case of KDE, did it appear to autologin? (i.e. do you see the KDE
splash screen with icons appearing for each desktop component started,
ending finally with the KDE logo?)
In the case of GNOME, did it appear to autologin?
In both cases, do you finally see the desktop afterwards?
Or where, if anywhere, is the user password prompted? This behaviour was
not reproducible by me with i386 GNOME or amd64 KDE, nor have we
received reports of this behaviour from anyone but you.
You gave a longer list of further problems. Let's tackle the very first
issues you're having first.
