What's strange Doc, is the DVD he made works but the flash drive doesn't.

Are you putting the .iso files into a folder on the HD & then removing the ei.cfg file ? You cannot remove it directly from the .iso.

You can use this tool to remove it from the ISO,

winisoutils - Windows ISO Disc Image Utilities

Which I think is how ESL did his.

Yes. The weird thing is this works when I make a DVD. I just made a DVD of the ISO with the one file removed, and it works. It just doesn't work when I make it a USB.
