I am using a program that enables me to add an ISO image as a boot option so I could boot from it.

OK, don't do that, just burn it to a disk or something. Once booting is passed off to OSX, OSX needs to be able to read an ISO disk image to boot, which it cannot do, same as it cannot boot from an unrestored dmg

+1. There is more info on that kernel panic screen that should be useful? Please also include the hardware specs of your laptop so we don't have to go searching for them based on the model number.
