In the course of much trouble with installing F9 on one of my
machines, I found that it helped to use an external USB CD/DVD drive --
but only if the drive was plugged directly into that machine, with no
hub, switch, nor anything else in between. Then, and only then (after I
also got the BIOS set up to see and boot from that drive), could I do it.
