If not borrow a USB DVD drive, or take out the HD to place alone in another computer to install, then SysPrep to move HD to another computer before moving back to target machine.

First try booting the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first boot screen:
Asus - F8
HP/Compaq - Esc
Sony - F2
Acer - F12
Gateway - F10
eMachnes - F10
Toshiba - F12
Dell - F12
IBM/Lenovo - the blue Thinkvantage button

With stick plugged in, see if it has a USB or Removable choice in list. If not see if you can click or expand the HD entry to see more choices. Your stick may be there.

If not can you move your HD to another computer to install, or borrow a USB DVD drive?

Did you ignore what I just wrote? I said not to use the BIOS Boot Order but instead to access the one-time BIOS Boot Menu by tapping the key at boot, from the list I gave you of all computer models.
