re burn the cd and slow your burn speed down then repeat
just because it has the correct md5 cheksum does not mean it will read every byte . use your f1 or f2 buttons to see if there is special features for different hardware.

Thanks for reply Draeko. But the CD is working fine on my friend's laptop.and launching the KDE desktop. I think its the problem of my hard disk. I read in one forum that BT3lack support to some SATA disks. However any more suggestions are welcome.
