Your mistake is that you copied the ISO to a CD. That's NOT what you do
with an ISO.

With an ISO, you have to BURN a CD with the ISO. From Windows, try
right-clicking on the ISO... Maybe in the menu you will get the option
to "Burn the ISO".

If you don't have that option, check if you have a CD burning software.

Things like Nero can "BURN" ISO files.

If you don't have a good CD burning software, get ImgBurn : and use that to burn the CD file.
