I'm glad that worked for you. It might actually complete faster from the thumb drive than the optical drive. Thumb drives are easier to carry and won't scratch like DVD will. I do all my installs from thumb drives and keep the required drivers and programs for the clean install on them too. If your like me though you'll probably still try to figure out why the DVD didn't work.
