i've got the latest firmware. I have a 6 Gig HD, i installed it on that with no problems. then i upgraded the RAM and HD, i got into the install then the CD drive broke... i got another CD drive that it'll boot from but it won't install for some reason, even if i just have the old 6 gig or just the new 80 Gig...
