Have you tried "Compatibility mode"?
Press any key while the LiveCd counts down
Also, have you looked at the troubleshooter?

Hmm I should add the "Compatibility mode" (done :))

Ha I had that problem with an ISO that i downloaded about 2 weeks ago. I tried reburning, cd, dvd, still same issue even though md5sum was ok. I redownloaded the ISO and all is well now. What server did you use to download?

I'm getting this error too. I tried Compatibility Mode no result, tried burning to another CD with another software but still the same problem.Tried making a live usb but didn't work either.Ubuntu installed without any error. I own a HP Pavilion dv6835ca laptop. Tried also on another machine same problem. I downloaded ISO 2 days ago. Tried re-downloading.

Could you tell us what hardware you have - I know you've written Dell and a model but hat does not tell much as it can be widely different content in the same model - not meaningful to look it up.
