Probably easier to just copy the DVD to the USB key, copy from the USB to the hard drive on the laptop and then install as normal from the laptop hard drive. By definition a DVD is less than 5Gb so a cheap 8Gb USB drive will be enough to do it.

Thanks i totally missed that i can just copy the install files to a usb. I thought it would be copy protected.
Install took about 8 mins and didnt even ask for the key
