inability to load openSUSE from DVD downloaded iso

I've been trying to download and install/run openSUSE for several months. I've successfully done this with other distros but no joy with openSUSE. I'm running basically Ubuntu 14.10 on a Compaq Presario laptop and an amd64 based tower. Can't get it to go on either one. Download iso then burn to either thumb drive or dvd, 32 and 64 bit versions. On boot up the splash logo screen comes up then nothing. I see two .exe files on the burned disk, does this mean it only can be booted from a Windows machine? BTW, I've done this with Kubuntu, Fedora, Zorin, Ubuntu and Mepis successfully.
Thanks for any insights.

Did you check the integrity of your download(?).

Have you tried a live/installable version on your machine(?).
Some alternative media (eg. live and rescue systems) are also available, although they are less tested and recommended for only limited use. Click here to display these alternative versions.

If downloadable doesn't work why even have it online with encouragements to download it?
I have found only one amd64 version to download.

Tell me where I can find other versions.
