Computer won't read ISO at boot
The following error comes up when the DVD is in and I try booting (including harddrive in boot order completely skips the DVD, so I removed it to only boot from the DVD):Code:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device; or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.Code:
Remove disks or other media.; Press any key to restart
Any help would be appreciated... thanks.
(I did indeed burn the ISO to the disc every time)

you say you burned the ISO to disc every time - but did you burn it as an image file in your CD burning application? in other words, if you don't specifically tell the software that you are attempting to create a CD/DVD from an ISO/image file, and instead you just drag-and-drop the ISO file to the CD burning window, then you'll create a non-bootable data CD.
You can tell by inserting the burned CD into a booted up machine (Linux, Windows, whatever), mounting it and seeing what is in it. If you just see the ISO file, then you created it the wrong way.
In addition to the response from atreyu, I would consider downloading the file again, it may be corrupt so get its checksum file as well and run the downloaded file through a utility such as sha256sum on linux when the download is complete to verify the integrity of the file. I would also try downloading the file from another source
Also there is some great ISO burning tutorials on the net. just google "burn iso".
Hope it's nothing more serious, like a hardware issue.
