I installed my 8.1 using an usb stick and the disc1.iso image**.
When I had to choose insallation media source, I couldn't choose USB drive
nor CD (media not found or so).

AFAIK, it was broken on 7.2, but the good news is that FTP install seems to
work pretty well.

fdisk on your stick, creating a bootable partition, then newfs to create it
mount the disc1.iso file and copy its content in your new partition
