FWIW, the way I managed to install A2 natively was as follows.

I couldn't get a USB key to write successfully. I could write it but
it wouldn't boot.

However, Virtualbox would boot the ISO file mounted as a device.

I think also tried making a boot floppy with a USB floppy drive -- no joy.

So I made a dedicated primary partition for A2, mounted it as a
directly-attached drive in VirtualBox, with the options that give the
VM a fake MBR and partition table.

Then I booted the VM off the ISO image but installed to a real
physical partition. I pointed my boot manager at that partition, and
voilá, native A2 on bare metal.
