If you boot then exit sysinstall to a prompt, try to mount the external drive. If you can mount it, then rerun sysinstall and choose to install from a mounted file system instead.

More details:

I am able to boot and get to the installation utility but when I go to "choose installation media" and choose "CD/DVD" the response is "No CD/DVD devices found!"

what can I do about this?

Cheers,

Noah

I am at a loss of how to do it.
