[App_rpt-users] New Acid install - kickstart download fail from USB

I used the windows Rufus app to create the bootable USB stick from the acid_centos.iso.  I'm thinking this may be the trouble.  I will probably need to find another method for creating the USB stick.  Recommendations for a procedure that has worked for the Acid ISO?

       Thanks for the reply Loren.  The same iso file installs without error when installed on a new VM.  Have you had success with a USB thumb drive install?  Perhaps Acid install from USB is not supported.

I know it sounds far fetched but it almost sounds like a corrupt ISO  image..

                      First time AllStar user and node setup.  I have a small form factor PC with no CD ROM or floppy.  I've created a Acid Centos install on a USB stick but after it successfully boots from the stick and status the install it complains it can't find the kickstart file and then prompts me for cdrom.  I've confirmed the ks.cfg is in /Dev/sdb1:/ks.cfg but even with kickstart boot options it fails to find it.  Same PC installs Centos 7 from same USB stick without issue.  I've used the Centos Wiki page To create a USB stick install using the Centos-5 section but this method rests in a USB key that is not recognized by eufi as bootable. I'm using an acid_centos.iso downloaded a couple of days ago from the AllStar home page.                                 
                            I have not tried putting the ks.cfg on an FTP or web server yet - anyone have success with Acid install from stick?                            
                            I also burned the ISO to a CD and booted from a USB CD ROM drive but it also fails to "download" the kickstart - exact experience as USB key.  Have tried all three of the USB ports on this PC.  Have also tried two different USB sticks.
