I have a valid MS Office 2007 Enterprise disc and key that I want to install onto my son's laptop. Unfortunately he has no dvd drive on his laptop.

I looked on Microsoft.com and found a Office 2007 dowload link. It won't let me download with the key that I have. I assu,e that's because it is not valid for download.

How can I use the disc to get it onto his laptop?

External CD drive?
Copy CD to bootable flash?

Not sure tbh, that's what I'd google.

Would it still work if it's copied? A lot of software doesn't.

Yes Office installs fine from USB with just all the install files copied onto it.

"Fools," said I, "You do not know:
Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
And the words that it was forming
