Do you have another PC to try the disk on?

Also, it might be worth checking the MD5 checksum of the ISO file,
just in case you got a bad download.

Another way to check it is to install VirtualBox and see if it can
boot and run the ISO file. If it can, it may well be OK and you have a
bad burn, in which case, try again.
