First check image whether it is the same as the one hosted on website (using MD5 checksum). Then burn it to usb flashdrive using unetbootin/imagewriter. Then change BOOTORDER using F2 key - first boot -> usb. Then reboot. After installation is complete, change bootorder back to HDD or else the OS will again be reinstalled from the usb. Hope this helps.

(should be a comment but rep to low) If its a recent laptop it might have secure boot on by default. If that's so, have you tried to deactivate it in your bios?
