Look here ISO - Disk Image File : Extract to the Desktop
Instead of expanding to the desktop, expand it into the USB, assuming the USB is large enough to accommodate both the image and the expanded files.

Then you will indeed need to try installing from a DVD.

Where did you get the Image?

You will likely have activation problems unless you have your own valid Product Key.

Does the Product key match the installation image? Meaning, is the Product Key for the same exact product as the image.
A key for OEM x64 Pro wont work on a retail x86 ultimate.

okay, best you try a DVD first. If you don't have an OS installed to give you errors, chances are, it's the media.
