Unhappy can't load ubuntu

i had to replace my hard drive, so now i have a new blank hard drive that i set partitions and formatted but when i try to load ubuntu from cd i burned(which i checked and downloaded correctly) it stops at the check hlt. i tried ALL the option settings, and still no good. it either restarts or gets stuck at that point again. am i doing something wrong? i can install ONLY ubuntu as my os right? like i said there is nothing else on hard drive-blank. if someone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
thank you

I can only assume that there's something wrong with the CD you burned. I would suggest burning another if you can. Maybe get a friend to burn it for you or something?
