Unless the DVD got damaged in transit or something, I would expect it to work without a hitch.  After all, it's not difficult to burn an ISO to a DVD, which is essentially what you are getting.

I really expect no problems either.  The main reason I purchased it was I have tried 25 times to burn a ISO image to both usb sticks and dvd.  At some point doing the burn there is a failure.  Error code & reason changes from software to software I have tried.

 

I even tried that software you mentioned that only burns ISO.  So I bought the disc.

Could be faulty hardware causing the burn to go awry. Though that doesn't explain the ISO image not working on a USB drive.

LOL I agree but it does not appear to be malware or system corruption so what Is left.

I have tested all hardware that is testable without actual removal and disassembly.

Either using HP's built in tools or third party software.

Which software did you use to make the live USB?  Is your computer using BIOS or UEFI?

If you are making a live USB from within Windows you cannot use a Linux app.  Also, the Media Creation Tool is only for Windows images.  You cannot use the Media Creation Tool with Linux images.

 

[Edit]

Rufus is the tool I would recommend to create a live USB.  However, you haven't answered my question about whether your computer is using BIOS or UEFI.  That is an important factor when it comes to both making a live USB and installing Linux.

How to burn ISO image using Windows Burn Disk Image.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.

5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.

If you haven't done so you could try rufus. It makes it pretty easy to create a bootable USB drive. Also you are able to install under windows.

 

@hollowface I believe OP did buy from OSdisc.com
