If you can not boot from the cd, there is either a problem with the cd itself, or with the downloaded iso.
Verify the downloaded image checksum with md5.

No use cd software that burns the iso directly to the cd. Nero in windows and every burning software in linux will work. Also if it can't find initrd.img you must have forgotten to copy that file.
