Thank you guys,
In fact, I tried again and pay closer attention to what really happens.
After selecting a language ( I tried both English or french with same
result) I made my selection to start the installation and after a minute or
two I got a warning window telling:
Error reading boot cd
with a REBOOT button.
I even tried the check cd for defects and got the exact same message.
Before posting a bug report, I will try downloading a new .Iso and burning a
new CD. Who knows, the problem could be just the CD I burnt.
