    Did you use a download manager when you downloaded the ISO?

    What rate did you burn the live CD?

    Have you validated the md5 checksum against that posted on the website?
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    There are 2 possible problems right there. I suspect your md5 checksum won't match either.

    1. Download but do not use a download manager.
    2. Burn at slowest rate possible (~4x).
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";
