So I got a older computer today, and I decided I would try some OS out on on. I downloaded elementary on chrome and wrote it on to a disk using infra recorder, then I booted on my old computer, it loaded and came to this grayish screen and didn't do anything, no setup, no loading, no nothing.

So I thought maybe it was something todo with elemetary so I tried pear, it did the same thing.

What am I doing wrong?
