Re: hp mini 311 reinstalling Windows Xp

You have ION platform, I do not have any experience with ION platform, but strong posibility you have sata/raid driver issue. try to sliptream Nvidia sata/raid drivers as provided in the attachments.

 

Sliptream both of that files with Nlite, not sure which one will work, please report to help others.

Re: hp mini 311 reinstalling Windows Xp

thanks for the drivers.  I used an external floppy and an external dvd/cd drive with xp pro sp2 cd.  I was able to press the F6 option and install the sata drivers from the floppy and the install went just fine.  This was a little quicker that trying to do the slipstream option if anyone cares.  Thanks for the help.

Rakhmad, thank you for posting that great information! I had the same problem installing XP from a USB CD-ROM on a 311-1025NR. I followed your advice and the install worked perfectly!

Re: hp mini 311 reinstalling Windows Xp

I joined this forum specifically to thank you. It took me ages to figure out how to do this, and it was all because of your explanation that it finally got done. THANKS!
