Ubuntu Problem booting from the CD

I have recently decided to try out Linux as an alternative to Windows. My friend referred me to Ubuntu so I came here. I downloaded the Iso and copied it to a CD. When I insert the CD, I get the boot menu but upon selecting an option, It gets to "Loading Linux Kernel 100%" and sits there with the disk read light going and hard drive light going, but just sits there. I fell asleep last night and woke up 7 some hours later and it was still sitting on that screen. I then removed my graphics card and any non factory hardware, thinking maybe it was causing some sort of problem with the boot but to no avail.

Please help me with my Issue.
