you should do the 'install from a mounted iso' if you can boot with disk1 and are able to mount your usb drive then you mount the iso files as drives and then run the setup from them, in the setup you choose the source, the trick here is to point it to
/mount/point/slackware
when you choose source you need to point it to the slackware directory.
