    $DEITY on a stick learn some punctuation and grammar.

    To answer your problem though, your "bro" has extracted the ISO on you and thus screwed up the bootable sections of it. Suffer through the download again and this time don't extract the ISO (the file should stay the same!!!!!). Verify it's hash (if you don't know how I suggest you learn, if you have to ask I suggest you stick with windows), and only then burn the disc.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    And in addition to that, DO NOT copy the iso directly to the CD. You need to google on how to burn an iso image to CD.
