Default WIN 64 bit install help

Hey, first things first, YES! i have EM64T so this OS will work. I burned the .iso image I DL from MS using nero. But when I try to install it, it is saying my selected boot device (aka: CD-ROM drive) is not available. I look in the BIOS for the CD-ROM drive as a boot device and it says it is present. What is up with that? I burned the .iso image as a .iso in nero but nothing works :-/. Any special instructions I missed? Any help would be great, thank you.

Your .iso was corrupted in the download process, download it again...

Thank you for the info. It worked and everything is good. But, ran into another problem (seems to be popular going to xp 64). I have a dell 8400, which I'm pretty sure it has a dell mobo in there and my HDD is Seagate 40Gb SATA. I have the 32-bit drivers and tired that but unfortunately it didn't work . If you can run 32-bit apps on xp 64, i assumed you would be able to run 32-bit drivers. Was my assumption wrong, and what can I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
