It may be waiting for you to type something.

Alternately, perhaps you could explain more details about your situation.

It may mean the bootloader isn't working. Is your computer UEFI? It's difficult for me to give any specific answer to this sort of problem, when the only symptom is "doesn't work".

That's something you need to look up before you install. Most modern consumer PC's are UEFI. Does the computer boot normally from its own hard drive?
