Windows 7 dual boot problem

I have a new computer with windows 7 pre installed. I set aside a 34gb unallocated partition for fedora 16. I used the windows 7 "Burn disc image tool" to burn a x86_64 fedora 16 image to a cd. I rebooted into it and selected "Start fedora 16". It tries to start of and then...

dracut: Warning: No root device "live:/dev/disk/by-label/Fedora-16-x86_64-Live-Desktop.is" found

Dropping to debug shell.

sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
Then it drops into a debug shell. Any ideas?

My computer is a dell inspiron 620 MT with Windows 7 Home Premium

Intel i5 3.0ghz

6gb ram

EDIT: I found this thread. http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...42&postcount=3

ls /dev/disk/by-label
