Would buying a DVD drive and putting the ISO on there make a difference do you think?

Well I went and purchased a DVD drive, problem solved. I even still used the USB to boot and install from but it seems having a DVD drive present cured the problem. Most bizarre!

Cheers for all the help guys.

Is it passable that you had the DVD you didn't have installed set to boot first in Bios. I'm not sure it would show up in Bios because I have always had DVD drive.
