Use the mini, there is no advantage when making the usb stick to using
the full iso.

We fixed a problem related to installing to hard disk from the full iso,
I don't recall specifically testing usb deployment from the full iso, so
this may be a new ticket.

What OS Version are you using on your computer to create the startup usb?
