When the XO is powered-on with the 4-game-key held-down, it tries to find a
medium with which it can upgrade. And that message is showing you the various
places its looking for an upgrade medium.  Its looking for a file named
'fs.zip' on the XOs internal disk, then then its looking for the file named
'fs1.zip', then its looking for an external disk connected to the USB ports,
then its looking for a wifi signal from Nandblaster, at which point, it failed
to find any useful upgrade medium.
