Sounds like the disk is bad, I would reburn at a slower speed, make sure I am burning an image and try again.
You can try the disk that you currently have on another pc to be sure its a bad disk first, also try another boot disk that you know for sure is good in the pc you are having troubles with to make sure it is not the pc.
and recheck bios settings just to be sure.
hope that helps
