Windows 7 (64bit) for HP mini 210-4000cto and HP 210-2177nr

[ Edited ]

 HP mini 210-4000cto with Intel N2800 CPU and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 Series and Intel Chipset NM10.

Intel wrote the CPU can use 64bit -  Instruction Set 64-bit and Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 4 GB.


HP mini 210-2177nr with Intel N550 and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 and Intel Chipset NM10. Intel wrote CPU can use 64-bit and Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 2GB

N2800 is found here:

NM10 is found here:  Specifications  or Chipset diagram

N550 is found here:


 HP mini 210-4000cto The RAM I use is made by Kingston - KTT1066D3/4G yet more companies can make a 4GB RAM for this Computer.


HP mini 210-2177nr The RAM I used is either made by Kingston - KTH-36S/2G yet more companies can make a 2GB RAM for this Computer. I also used Crucial Solid State Drive Part #: CT3827875 and Crucial Memory Part #: CT2149067


Both, from Intel wrote: Instruction Set 64-bit, therefore both HP mini 210-2177nr and HP mini 210-4000cto have 32bit & 64-bit abilty. yet to use 64-bit, it must have HP 32bit & 64-bit BIOS software. Therefore must be compatible 32bit & 64bit BIOS software, 64bit drivers software, and 64bit Operating System .


Make sure Optical Drive is at the top of the boot list, therefore with USB attached Optical Drive, to install.  I installed Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit in HP mini 210-2177nr with no problems, after I bought a Solid State SATA 3, nothing less than SATA 3 will work.  Perhaps HP mini 210-4000cto would load to login screen with asist, yet not beyond to install drivers


When I tried to install in HP mini 210-2177nr, I had problems with some Solid State Drive, I found the reason being the solid state drive I used, was a SATA 2 version,  I bought a SATA 3 Solid State Drive, the SATA 2 was slow and had errors


With a SATA 3 State Drive with Windows 7 64bit installed. Now I only needed Ethernet, Video, and Wireless, yet I needed the Audio and On Screen Display and a few other drivers too. I used what was found at HP listed for 32-bit, yet almost all worked for 64bit too, I can install the activation key, and Windows Updates - therefore almost everything is installed for HP mini 210-2177nr, I went to Intel for Graphics Media Accelerator 3150, listed for N400 and N500 series, (it might show D500, yet it works) then it was complete.


When I lacked 64bit Video Drivers for either HP mini 210, the Video drivers error is: The computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software, setup will exit, it was warning that its not 64bit software. Hard to find because Intel does not have it yet- because its a Intel N2800 and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600, not yet written for it, someone one on the Internet, wrote one. Windows 8.1 has this installed for HP mini 210-2177nr Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 also found at intel download site - the one for the Intel N550 or you get errors


HP mini 210-4000cto - The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600,  I found on the Internet for N2800 CPU, does not work in Windows 8.1, it does work in Windows 7.

I used HP BIOS version F.24 (it has 32bit & 64-bit)


HP mini 210-4000cto

Please I need 32bit & 64bit BIOS Software. The HP BIOS softare I found was 32bit.

64bit is needed for 64bit Software, therefore HP 32bit & 64bit BIOS software is needed
