Live distro boot

I have made a live DVD from the image WW2.10_Ubuntu14.04_Vanilla_LiveDVD.iso and tried to run it and install it on a Dell Optiplex 755 with 4GB of RAM. I get the following error

(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesytem.squashfs failed: Invalid argument
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on filesystem.squashfs.

I have performed an md5 check sum the image on the disk which is good. Indeed the live dvd boots on a Dell optiplex 7020 (4GB of RAM). Furthermore, a live distro of ubuntu 15.04 boots on the Optiplex 755. 

Is the error common? Is there a quick fix so that I can boot or install from the WW live distro?

Hi Zak,

This is not a common error, or at least we have not had any other reports.   Googling the error message doesn't give a lot of help --- the most likely problem seems to be a problem with the DVD.  You might try burning the image on a new DVD maybe using a different burner and verifying the burned image (which you probably did for the original image).  You can also try the standard Ubuntu 14.04 image but that should work exactly the same as the WeBWorK image.
