I wanted to see if that drive is chosen as IDE or SATA. For SATA, there may be some drivers needed, but usually it works as IDE nicely.

What it's telling you is your ISO is bad - you might want to download again (if purchased from a store as a digital download) or recreate it. If downloading, make sure the checksums match to the original (working) source.
