A couple of things....

1., check that your BIOS is set to boot 1st from the CD/DVD drive.

Assuming this is the case,

1. Did you burn an ISO image of the install disk (not a data disk)

Assuming this is the case,

Try re-burning at 4X speed, people have reported having grief at higher speed burn-rates.

Post back with how you get on,
