DF 3.0.2 burnt to a DVD-RW.
Installing with HAMMER on every try.
I have found a 120mm fan in my collection to put under the laptop to check if there really is a overheating problem.

Surely helped that I installed a 120Gb SATA HD to boot from ;-)
The SSD is still in there if anyone want me to help out why it isn't recognized.
