I made my own live... with persistent settings.
It is now configured in such a way that when my boot disk would fail... the live usb has all the settings to make it a replacement.
After rebooting I can continue immediately. Later I can put back my image or do other things to repair the system.
For Debian 8.1 it works similar, just adapt names...

Works like a charm....
PS: of course my live passwords are as on the original disk...
do i need to put the installation iso on a cd and then do it?

I check and make sure it is ok, readable,etc.
Then I also put in my Debian install CD, in my portable USB optical drive.
Then I shut the computer down.
Then I boot , with the usb optical drive, and install CD, then when I start the install
I select the "sdb" drive that is the usb stick, and install to that drive. Very simple and all ways works just fine ,for me, after the installation, I have a usb stick that boots, and has Debian on it as the OS.
There are other considerably more complicated methods, but none ever have worked
for me, but any way, it still is something a simple search will get lots of various tutorials and methods of installing a OS to a usb drive.

In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so.
