Welcome to LQ!
Was the checksum OK?If yes,try to burn iso image with another burning software.
If that doesn't help type at the boot line this
Code:
/isolinux/vmlinuz initrd=/isolinux/initrd.img
and then hit enter.

Thanks for welcome.
I have not written backtrack' s iso on the disc, but I extracted and copied the contents on usb support.
I want to just try BT, I have not changed anything on usb support.

When you boot the computer, the first thing that starts up is the boot loader, usually called "Grub," which is responsible for locating the Linux operating-system on your hard-drive and loading it into memory so that it (Linux...) can start to run. Apparently, Grub can't find Linux.

In my experience, this is frequently because the boot-loader is looking in the wrong place. For instance... if you're trying to boot from a USB-stick, but the information on the stick is saying (to Grub...) that the kernel image should be found on (say) a hard drive, where it isn't.

I am not familiar with Backtrack, but perhaps this will be enough to get you started in the right direction.
