Re: EeePC 701 : Is pre-upgrade not optional??

Could you try installing from a live usb? It worked like a charm for
me, and I'm sure it will also work for you
This link really really helped me.


 It has instructions to install F10 from a usb stick into an Acer One.
If you follow this guys instructions it will work for your 701 as
well. It's not necessary to perform the installation with LVM though,
you can skip that and install it on an old fashion ext2 partition
(Careful, the installer installs as ext3 anyway, so you have to do as
stated on this blog to turn it back to ext2, no big deal).
