Hmm. What do you mean "dhcp starts"?
The installer boots from USB stick using isolinux which has nothing to do 
with DHCP.

You may have used the wrong image; you should have used:
(i.e: hd-media instead of netboot)

You could also try the "flexible method" to create the USB stick and see 
if that works.
