I have messed it up now. I managed to update it to 7.10, using this guide:

...which worked fine, however the next update I did crashed half way 
through. The computer will still boot but gives an error message after 
logging in saying 'unable to initialize HAL' and it will not connect to 
the internet. I made a bootable USB using unetbootin to try and just 
install 9.0.4 over the top, but it crashes saying 'kernel panic'. Is 
there any way I can fix the computer? Or should I send it back to Viglen?
