You need someone who uses this.  They all seem to be absent, though there are 
quite a few of them.  It's a Saturday.  Slávek is usually here at the 
weekend, which is OK for us Debian users. :-)  But people in general are 
sparse on the ground.

You might find this and what follows interesting:

It's your time and money, and you who might be getting as pig-headed as I have 
been known to get, and you who may be saying "I'm ***-well _going_ to get it 
done this way", but I'd try optical media at this point.

I have had problems with USB installation on occasion.  Not, as it happens, 
with TDE (it was Linux Mint 17 with MATE), but it was a problem with the 
actual stick.  It installed on some boxen and not on others.  Honest!  Where 
it didn't install, we managed to get hold of a DVD and that worked.

The actual sticks/keys are a variable bunch.  I gather it makes a difference 
where in the block the chip is cut from - middle or outside.

Grandmother. eggs etc, but I would md5sum or shasum or something check both 
the download (you already have) *and* the burnt image, if you burn one.
