Yes, I've verified this before and again after you asked that it is
seen as /dev/sda, at least through the installation DVD. fdisk also
does not find a sdb/c/d if I try that.

Both, I can set the boot sequence in BIOS, which is currently to boot
USB first. And I can also hit F10 to choose.

Yes, definitely :D
