Try to read disk on a different computer. May be a bad disk.

This might be a stupid question, but did you go into the bios and make sure the cd/dvd boots before the hard drive?

If you have created the disk from an ISO file, make sure you created the disk properly. Just doing a drag and drop of the ISO file to the disk will result in a useless, non-bootable disk. You must create the disk from the ISO and not create a disk with the ISO (if that makes any sense).
