Question Sabayon Live CD wont boot on Notebook Dual Booting Windows and Mint

(I'm new to Linux) I have a laptop dual booting Windows and Linux Mint. I wanted to add Sabayon, but when the CD boots it just gives me a line reading: "ISOLINUX 3.63 0x4859b68a Copyright (C) 1994-2008 H. Peter Anvin"

No installation screen. Just this line.

I really had a hard time searching for answers on this question, because I have no idea why the installer wont run. Is there a limit to installations?

I know it is not the CD player, the BIOS settings, etc, because I can boot from other CDs just fine.

Any ideas.

Thanks in advance.

(IN the meantime I might install Sabayon on my VirtualBox on my Windows Vista PC)

Lightbulb ISO from Sabayon mirror was corrupt

After attempting to install on VirtualBox and extracting the ISO I think the ISO is messed up. I'm installing linuxquestions Sabayon ISO right now. I'll try that later. I downloaded the ISO from Virginia Tech University.
