Re: Upgrade from 1.2.0 to 1.3.1

Thank you for your question.
For the first FSM I do not believe that 1.20 to 1.3.1 is a supported upgrade path. Check your readme and make sure that you are at the appropriate firmware level to make that jump.
For the second. Are you using the Base Media to do the install? If so, is the DVD drive you are using an externally powered or USB powered? If USB, that is not supported and although it sometimes works you're much better off getting an AC powered DVD drive. In my experience that will work every time assuming there's no issues with the media itself.
If I could add one more thing for the first FSM I would recommend using the base media to upgrade to 1.3.1 so that the recovery partition is at the latest level and should you ever have a system crash (which I unfortunately have experienced) you will be at the latest code level. This way, when you perform the recovery it will already be at 1.3.1 and then you will simply just need to restore a recent backup.
