reinstall windows xp on mini 110

Hello,

 

I need to reinstall windows xp on my HP Mini 110.  I have a USB flash drive which I purchased especially to do this.  I also have the windows xp disk. I have a sandisk crusier.  I know I first have to make the usb bootable.  It is a 4 GB and when I insert the usb there is all this stuff already on this usb.  Do I deleted it?  And where would I find software compatible to hp to make this usb bootable?  Thank you.

Hi:

 

You may want to copy the files off the USB flash drive to save for future use, then delete them.

 

I came across what appears to be a nifty utility that automatically makes your USB flash drive bootable and you just copy your XP disk to the flash drive.

 

I have never tried it but if you want to give it a go, have at it.

Now you know you need to load the A=SATA ACHI driver to a copy of your XP installation disk, correct?  If you don't you won't be able to install XP.

 

Read this section on slipstreaming drivers.

Below is the link for the drivers you need:

 

Below is the link to the driver download you need. The second download listed is the one you need for XP 32 bit.

The driver you need to select to install is the Intel(R) ICH7M/MDH SATA AHCI Controller.

Hi, Linda:

 

I use this tool for making a USB drive bootable.

 

I have attached the file.

 

Just download, extract, and run it.

Hi, Linda:

 

If you also want to copy and paste the standard DOS command files to the bootable flash drive, I have attached those below.
