Are you sure you got an image that can boot from USB?

I maybe that your image was not burned correctly, or you are not specifying the boot from a removable drive. If you can not set it up from the boot options menu, try setting the boot priority in your systems bios.

You .iso image could be damaged as well. Re-download the image file and follow these instructions to create a .iso usb boot drive.

For Windows:

For ubuntu:

For linux in general:

Hope this helps.

It sounds like the bios detected the drive which led to booting the liveCD, but the lvieCD does not have drivers for the cd-rom device which lead it to fail loading the files from the disk when it attempted to mount them for interaction.

mfillpot maybe right that ubuntu does not have a driver for the cd-rom. What system are you installing it onm HP, ASUS?

This maybe silly, but make sure that your cd-rom did not malfunction. Unplug it and re-connect it. Then verify that your bios can see it.
