HP Mini 210-2100 XP installation

[ Edited ]

Hello.

I have HP Mini 210-2100 notebook and I would like to install XP windows

 

I read this thread http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-systems-and/SATA-drivers-for-XP-solution-on-0x000000...

 

but one thing confuses me.

In CPU-Z under "Mainboard" tab, under "Chipset" i have ----INTEL----ATOM HOST BRIDGE

and below that, under "Southbridge" i have ----INTEL----NM10.

 

Can I use this guide below ?

"For models with NM10 chipset: "You need to slipstream SATA driver (only NM10 Express Chipset) with nLite. "



Thanks

Provost

Thanks for quick reply.

One more question..

Where can I find drivers for XP ?
On HP site there are only drivers for Win7 32 bit .

Hi again,

Use Windows 7 drivers from here.

Most of them should work under XP too.

If any driver will not work then just let us know about it.

Re: HP Mini 210-2100 XP installation

I have a problem with xp instalation :smileysad:(

 

First I copied Win XP ( regular c/p ) in to a folder on my HDD, and slipstreamed it with SATA drivers, following instructions from the link in my first post. Then I made bootable USB with XP containing SATA drivers with Novicorp WinToFlash 0.7.0018 beta program. 

In start-up menu I selected  "boot from usb".. and setup menu showed up... Copying Windows files on hdd was 100%, and after first restart I get black screen with this:

 

"Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware. Please check the Windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information. "

 

 

:smileysad:

Do not use this software.

Check the link below:
