If you haven't already, you might want to delete the sources\ei.cfg file from the media so it can be used to install any edition.

To burn an iso:

Rt click the iso and there should be an option to burn it to dvd.

Alternatively, extract the iso to create bootable usb. The usb stick will be formatted, so make there is nothing on there that you want. Gburner can do it

Just now getting back to this -

You have seen the picts and my results as pictured....When I placed the dvd into my computer, it did
auto-start....to the "setup icon"....

I have another Dell Desktop at my feet (the one I will jump off my table onto - grin) and have placed a formatted 1TB sata hard drive into it....Have set the bios to boot from dvd/cd rom as first device and it will not boot from the dvd/cd rom.

I have swapped out 4 different dvd optical drives and no luck,
