I got my 1012 yesterday. I immediately swapped in a 500GB drive. I attempted to install SL using mechdrew's nb2
instructions. I am able to boot to the NetBookInstaller stick. It detects the SL stick. When I select the SL Install, the stick flashes for a few seconds and then nothing. The screen stays gray. I have tried 2 different 16GB sticks (OCZ Diesel and Kingston DataTraveler).
I know the hard drive is good, as I had installed Windows previously (on another laptop) and checked it out. I also got bored at work, so I partitioned the drive and installed Win7 Ultimate (on the 1012). No Issues there. BIOS is at A04.
Can anyone help?
