I found it.
And I changed all three of them to boot from cd and it said something was wrong with the disc.

Thats possible. where did you get the iso? what did you use to burn it? did you burn the files and folders, or the single iso file?

You might want to burn it again. If you want you can check the hash'es to make sure your file and the source are exactly the same.

On the ms site they will have the hash value. You can download hash tab app and right click the iso file when you dl'ed it. It will give you a hash value. compare that to the hash on MS. if they are the same the ISO is identical. It should look like this
