Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

I have just purchased a HP 2133 mini-note. On first installation, installation failed and now it just loops and wont do anything. How can I facilitate first installtion bearing in mind there are no disks or disk drives.

If you click here there is a very good blog on how to install XP from a USB key.
The majority of these PCs have a recovery partition on the internal hard drive, here is the instructions for using it.
\015\012Recovering information using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)
\015\012Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) can perform a recovery from either an optional external hard
\015\012drive or from recovery discs.
\015\012CAUTION: Using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) will completely erase hard drive contents
\015\012and reformat the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer will
\015\012be permanently removed. When reformatting is complete, the recovery process will restore the operating
\015\012system, as well as the drivers, software, and utilities from the backup used for recovery.
\015\012To initiate recovery using WinRE, follow these steps:
\015\012NOTE: This process will take several minutes.
\015\0121. If possible, back up all personal files.
\015\0122. Restart the computer, and then press f8 before the Windows operating system loads.
\015\0123. Select Repair your computer.
\015\012NOTE: The "Repair your computer" option is displayed only if the WinRE partition is intact. If the
\015\012option is not displayed, refer to “Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating system
\015\012DVD (purchased separately).”
\015\0124. Follow the on-screen instructions.
\015\0125. Click Next.
\015\0126. Select your user name, type your password (if applicable), and then click OK.
\015\0127. If you are using recovery discs, insert the last disc of the recovery disc backup set.
\015\012NOTE: Inserting the last disc of the backup set confirms the presence of a valid backup. If you
\015\012insert any other disc, the backup will not be recognized.
\015\012– or –
\015\012If you are using an optional external hard drive, connect it to the computer.
\015\0128. Click Windows Complete PC Restore.
\015\0129. Follow the on-screen instructions.
\015\012
