I have no clue what's going on here. I installed the .iso via the Universal USB Installer on my external hard drive, but when I restarted and chose to boot up from the drive it told me some files were missing. I'm doing this because I don't have a blank DVD at my disposal and want to install it this way. Can it even be done this way?
