Having problems with your HP Mini Notebook ?

Need Windows XP restore image creator

\015 A fixya Guru recommended a link to me for restoring my XP netbook...but it installed LinuxUbuntu instead. Oops!I need XP back on my HP Mini. I have no internal or external disc drive for this computer.I do have a 2nd computer with disc drives and usb ports that currently has XP on it though, so i can still use that computer to create a restore image on a bootable usb flash drive. The only problem has been finding a XP restore image! I found one, but it wasn't netbook specific, and after installation i didn't have any of the necessary drivers (like sound and internet) for the newly reinstalled XP. And when i downloaded and moved the drivers to my netbook, an error message came up saying the files were corrupted (i downloaded the files from HP's website)the Linux Ubuntu Netbook Remix OS was a piece of cake to create and install on my netbook, but getting back to XP has been a very tough experience so far. Hopefully someone out there has an XP restore image link for use on netbooks. Thanks\015

Answers :

There should be a OSD cd-rom that came with you HP mini that you will need to re-install Windows XP. If you do not have this disc then you will need to contact HP and order another copy. Then you will need to use an external USB CD-rom or DVD-rom drive to re-install Windows XP. If you have already installed a different version of Windows XP from another computer then be aware that the license key for Windows will be tied to that other computer and Windows might disable the OS if you attempt to use Windows update so it is best if you install the version that came with the HP mini. As far as the driver files being corrupted when they were moved to the netbook that could be due to the fact that the netbook does not have the proper USB drivers installed yet causing the files to be corrupted during the transfer. You are better off using a removable cd-rom drive and burning the driver files to a disc then installing them on the netbook from there. Let me know if you have any questions.
