Mandriva from ISO
You must put the ISO file to a CD/DVD and boot your computer with it. Then follow instructions.
Forget your "USB" stuff.

If you have a CD burning device, it's easiest to burn the image to a blank CD, then set your BIOS to boot from the CD drive, put the CD in the drive, and reboot your machine. That should start the installation process.
Keep in mind that the ISO file must be burned as an image. Simply copying the file to the CD won't work.
