Does anyone know if I can use a blank external HDD to run this upgrade? I have a 09 Z4 with a glove box USB reader, however don't have a USB stick that is >8GB but have an empty HDD with 1.5TB capacity that I can format to FAT32.

Can I copy all the ISO's and extract the files to the root and hope the system will recognize what to do??

The USB port doesn't have enough power to spin up an HDD. Go buy a 16GB USB flash drive. They cost $20 now.
