    NavyLCDR's solution worked!

    What a wonderful new year. Seems there really was some issue with getting it to do stuff off of usb, and once it was on a partition on the system drive everything was dandy. A bit of a convoluted workaround but at least it works!

    also, just got access to another windows machine and tried making the drive using rufus, wouldn't even boot from it. Odd stuff.
    Rufus is too needlessly complicated and I recommend NEVER using it. There is no need to. Glad copying the ISO file to the hard drive worked!
