Hi there. Im kinda noob about this, but i want to switch from windows to fedora. I downloaded the 64bit iso image and then burned it to a cd. I restarted the system and the boot menu appeared. Everything was going ok, but then, an error message appeared. It said: error when reading sector 8000. kernel load boot. What is wrong???

Did you verify your download? As you are a windows user maybe this information can help you:

First of all make sure that the iso image you downloaded is not corrupted, and then boot again...
