You can install from a USB drive you need expert mode to see the USB devices 
at boot.

Alternatively, you can put the DVD image in a filesystem that will not be 
updated during the install/upgrade process.  You still need to boot from the 
boot.iso or ore of the other images in the image directory on the DVD image.
Booting from the rescue CD should also work.  At the boot prompt respond " 
linux askmethod"
