Brink, thanks so much for the quick answer!
I was really wondering about that step with the creation of bootable
USB or Optical media and why it ("bootable
") was necessary.
So may I assume that either case: (1)
extract the ISO to a folder, or (2)
just copy the pressed DVD to a folder will have the same effect? It is just a matter of getting the SETUP structure in place on the HDD, correct?
Instinctively, the execution from a blazing fast HDD (which we entrust with Windows itself) seems more likely to succeed rather than modern budget optical and flashdrives. Is there any reason my instinct is misleading me?
Thanks again for the wonderful guide. You are probably aware that many threads at Microsoft actually link to here!
