Does it have an SD card slot in it anywhere.

If you can`t use either of those 3 methods, you are out of luck. Replace the dvd drive and motherboard.

Have you even tried to install from usb ?

Hi there,

I really do not think you can install it in any other way except the one @AddRAM has suggested.
Although you can copy the installation file over a network onto the machine and then use special programs found online to run the installation, However the chances of it working are extremely low....

As @AddRAM has suggested change your optical drive....

Good luck!
