The CD image seems to be fine (both of them): I have installed them on a Linux kvm virtual machine and there were no problems -- both are able to do the complete installation and I am able to boot the resulting image. (Sorry, no other "physical" machines available at the moment.) > Also, is it possible to upgrade the BIOS on the problem machine? I would love to upgrade my BIOS but I am unable to do that -- I have not Windows installed and my vendor requires Windows to be installed in order to perform the upgrade (yes, I know! I will never buy another laptop from them!) I have not tried 8.0-BETA (as someone on the IRC channel suggested) but not sure if it will make any difference. As far as I understand, the snapshot I tried is more recent than 8.0-BETA2. Or am I wrong? Is it worth downloading one more ISO just to try it?
