What you have done is probably burned the ISO file to disc just as a file, without extracting it.

Use the program I suggested, it works every time. What it'll do is open the ISO and burn the individually extracted files to the CD so that it's bootable.

That is the best to do, although i think linuix is a waste of time, its all down to opinion.
