Some more input here: Choose the "burn Image to disk" option here. Do
not worry about various settings such as "mark this disc bootable",

At the end of this operation, you should not write the ISO file as a
plain file onto the CD-ROM. You need to write the ISO file as an
image. This will make the CD-ROM bootable.

At this point, if you are able to get into the command prompt, type
the following and note down the last few lines at least and then post
to this list.
cat /var/log/Xorg.log.0

Also, if you have Windows on this computer already, then let the list
know which specific Video Card you have.
