Thank you for any help or direction you can provide.
If you have tried on two systems, one with a standard IDE/SATA drive and
that failed to boot as well, I would suspect the install media is bad. I
would download a new ISO and burn a new cd. You might try an ISO from a
different mirror. It is possible your CD is foobar. Be sure you get the
correct disk 1 ISO from whatever mirror you use.
