If you ever come across a bootable linux CD or USB that just hangs at the following screen:

ISOLINUX Freezes/Hangs at Bootup

I fixed it by disabling the serial port in BIOS under Integrated Peripherals. Hopefully this helps saves someone from the amount of time wasted from burning and re-burning a bunch of CDs/DVDs, reformatting a bunch of USB drives, and hairloss.

Let me know if that works for you or if you found another fix in the comments below.
