Unlikely:  Your media isn't an install media, but a grub media.

Likely: A previous install attempt installed a grub boot loader on
a hard disk and that is booting instead of your optical drive.  So
either you didn't configure the BIOS to boot from optical or the
optical is broken or the optical media is broken so it can boot.
You should be able to determine which by listening and watching
msgs and drive lights, etc.
