USB installation looking for cd

Hello all,

I am trying to install the latest version of proxmox via usb, it searches for cd and fails to find one. I've found this guide, but it says to run a script that I can't find.

Any suggestions on usb installation, or will I have to break down and go buy some cd-r's?
Found the solution. I had to write the usb with rufus in DD mode instead of ISO mode.
