I have verified the CDROM disks and have tried burning multiple disks on different machines.

The CDROM is the first drive in the BIOS that is why Isolinux is being read from the CD during the boot process.

But the boot process is stalling around the Isolinux read process. 

I was hoping to get some pointers on how to burn a CD that enables more debug output on that process or some specific knowledge of known Isolinux issues with certain hardware.

Thanks Martin

Just want to double confirm that have you set the USB CDROM for the first boot device?

If yes, please verify whether the boot cd is corrupt? Or you could use another CD for testing.

Done that, cdrom is first boot device, and hard drive is second boot device.

I think this is a Vista install and Sony has the laptop bootup setup to
bootup  on a path to Windows on hard drive. and ignores the cdrom.
