Installing without DVD drive


[link to this post]
 
Have done it many times before however, for some reason my brain is not working this morning.

I have a new ultra-slim lap-top which does not have a DVD drive and I need to install MS Office, as well as several other applications, all of which are on DVD/CD. MS Office is fully licensed and in NOT 365.

I do not have an external USB drive either however I have other PCs with DVD drives.

What is the best way to install the software?

Most likely create an ISO on another PC, and pull it to a USB pendrive or similar.

Or if access to a device with a DVD drive then share the drive over the network and install from the share.

Or there are external USB DVD drives available for less than £20.

This would be my solution if you don't have usb ports.
