    Fizzbook upgrade to XP Pro problem

    I'm trying to upgrade a fizzbook spin to XP Pro. I can start the upgrade / install of from within XP home, however when the fizzbook reboots it fails to read the cd/dvd (a disk read error occurred). We are using an external USB DVD drive.

    If I use F11 and boot from the external dvd, the fizzbook sees the device, but then errors with 'Operating System not found'

    We used this disk & device to upgrade a samsung netbook without a problem. Have tried a few different installation media and a couple of drives but the problem persists.
    Any ideas? Thanks
