How to copy my mircosoft office cd to a flash drive and boot from it as if it was the cd?

My friend has a Netbook. I bought the family pack of microsoft office so I could install it on 3 computers. The guy at best buy said she could download it from Microsoft and install it without using the disc just using the cd code. Unfortunately this has not worked for us. Instead of buying a external DVD drive can I copy the contents of the Office disc to an old flash drive and boot it from that as if it were just the cd on a flash drive?

    You can install it on your flash drive and remove the run file. When you plug it in click the setup.exe file and run it.
