This question already has an answer here:

I have successfully burned Ubuntu to a disc but when I go to boot it from the BIOS, I get this error:

/casper/vmlinuz: file not found.

The installation menu comes up but no matter what option I select, I always get that error. Anyone know how to fix this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What did you configure as root? Because it looks as is there in an attempt to load the kernel from /casper/vmlinuz. Usuaully this file is stored in either /vmlinuz or in /boot/vmlinuz – Hennes Apr 5 '13 at 20:01

Maybe your ISO is corrupted. If you did not already MD5SUM it, please do that now.

If it doesn't match, redownload the ISO (and MD5SUM the new one too). If it's good, try burning another disc, as slowly as possible.

If that still doesn't work, please add a detailed account of everything you did and what happened, to your question. Please also tell us exactly how you're burning the discs, including what utility you are using.
