just after attaching the bootable pendrive and selectiong any of the options for boot(like install in text mode, memory test etc.) click on any of them freezes the screen... and the only option left with me is to reboot.

have you tried with other stick, try bootin something serious like sabayon/debian that will show you the text output so you can see what has gone wrong.
