    a lot of confusion and mistakes. 'dd' command did its job and your harddisk is clean and empty.
    you should not 'extract' .iso file and it should be burned as image. you can use any burner package. e.g. in Nero, select 'Burn Image to Disk', navigate to .iso file and burn it.
    try good Installation CD.
