booting what ? the desktop cd or post-install ? If from the cd, check the integrity of the download help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM –  bodhi.zazen Jan 18 '12 at 22:49
    
I have downloaded the iso and burned the image to a cd. I get the error right before if it will give you the option to try or install –  Austin Jan 18 '12 at 22:54

My guess is that you have a bad burn or the downloaded iso is corrupt. Check the md5sum of the iso from the link I gave you and if it looks good try another burn.

FWIW you need to "burn" this iso image onto a CD and not copy it.

See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

There are reports of similar boot errors with hardware problems (faulty ram , faulty power supply) but I am assuming your computer "works"

I ended up installing the 32-bit and after I did that the 64-bit install CDs would run and it let me install. Does anyone know why that made it work?
