Burn the iso to CD as an image at no more than 4x-8x speed. If you need a burning program which will allow you to choose speed see here for InfraRecorder.
Boot the CD and choose "check CD for defects"
Try installing again. If it fails again for resolution try F4 again for Safe Graphics mode.
If all this still nets the same result then unfortunately you may have to use the alternate installer.
Multi-boot: Arch linux, Ubuntu 12.04, Windows 7 & Windows 8
