The sel4.iso works fine for me when burned onto a CD-RW. If possible
please try another disc.

I do not know which methods Linux distributions use to make their ISO
images useable on USB flash drives but I assume it might be similar to
how we do it. Basically, we create a normal ISO image with a isolinux
bootloader and use isohybrid afterwards so it can also be used on USB
flash drives [1].
