Hi Drew, and welcome to FreeBSD.
How did you 'burn' the disc? As an iso image (in Windows) you can open
any burning program and tell it to burn it as is; you don't need to
extract any contents. This is the usual problem if it won't boot.
Alternatively, you can try making an installer on a usb disk. I'd
recommend at least a 2Gb stick, preferably 4G. See:
