Default Fresh Install: Cannot get past loading Netbook CD Installer - 11-07-2009, 09:41 PM

So, I've upgrade my memory to 2GB and harddrive to 64GB SuperTalent. I had SL installed on the original 16GB working fine, but now cannot install on my new drive.

I'm using Method 3/Uses External CD Drive, which is what I used on the 16GB drive, but it won't work. I've tried the older NCD 1.0 Delta that I used before and the newer NetbookCD 0.8.3 RC3.

When the CD installer loads, I get ONLY ONE square in the middle of the screen(it's the symbol for a CD!) with NCD_1.0d_snow underneath (obviously this is when I use 1.0 Delta).

Am I supposed to have several images (squares or symbols?) to choose from with one being SL?? Anyway, if I go ahead and insert the SL CD and tap Fn and F5, nothing happens.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?? Thks!!

When you swap the DVDs, unplug the DVD drive for as few seconds and then plug it in again. You should then see the SL DVD show up.
