    Error 8 appears at the bottom of a dos box which itself appears at the top left hand of the recovery screen. The recovery install then just stops

    The dos box is made up of two columns headed 'pstk' and 'rstk'.

    Err 8 appears towards the bottom, one line above 'ip 37da 45.7'.

    I have no idea what this means!

    I have managed to run recovery from a usb flash drive, so my AAO is up and running, and I have used the same USB DVD drive to get to the OS install stage on another laptop before I aborted the operation. The fact that I have managed this seems to point back at the AAO and some incompatability with the USB DVD drive - a Freecom Classic, or an issue with the AAO which is 4 days old.

    Any suggestions please?
