"USB drive" would probably mean a USB drive that's not the boot drive, 
maybe with a more common file system like FAT32 or NTFS.  That menu 
entry may need rewording.

An extracted CD image isn't a CD any more, so that's not it either.

"File System" is probably the right choice when the installation files 
are in a directory on the USB stick (untested by me, though).
