I'm having an issue installing Studio to my computer [64]..

When I try to install, the installer is trying to point to a CD image in my CD drive, rather than finding files on the USB stick that it is currently mounted to.. How do I fix this issue?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, read up on unetbootin for installing from a usbstick.
If you have a .iso file, burn it to a cd/dvd, and boot from that,
to run the installer. I believe .img is the extension unetbootin will look for

This is a common issue. Use dvd if you can.
