Is that pc that can't boot from memstick old?  I have an old PC, dating to July 2001, that can't boot directly from USB, but can boot from USB with the help of Plop (http://www.plop.at/) boot manager.

I think dvd1.iso was < 700 MB and would therefore fit on a CD? 

My computer from July 2001 had CD-RW but no DVD.  This was one of the factors pushing me to buy parts for a new computer.
