    Do you have another USB CD drive? I had a similar issue with the EEE's

    At what point is it failing? You could try install it from a USB Flash drive.

    This is a good guide for doing so -

    Mine wouldn't work from pen drive either, using a different CD Drive worked for me, also there was a setting in the bios that changed the hard drive mode, had to set that to 'install'. Don't know if that will be the same for yours though

    Yeah, you may need to change the SATA mode from Native to Compatible.
