Booting from cd/dvd, I get the driver error that there is no cd/dvd driver. browse to current installs system directories to see if it wants current from there. No, it pulls up a list of drivers for the on-board wlan mini-card. So I took off the card, retry, same error.
I've downloaded the image 5 times. each time it gets to 860mb and stops. I burned that to a dvd and it boots. Redownloading again to try to get the whole thing, maybe that's the issue?.. dunno
