Post solve HP mini net book sharing seasons
Hello everybody, before I had successfully install window Xp using wintoflash, I had facing many problem. Here I wish to share my experience using the wintoflash.

Netbook: Hp mini (come with window 7 starter edition)

Having your window Xp installer disc, by using the wintoflash software, make a bootable USB flash drive.
Recommendation –choose advance option, at the format tab, under file system choose FAT 16 LBA (previous I had choose FAT 32 LBA, during booting from USB flash drive an error will occur, so try using FAT 16 LBA first if can’t try using other format will solve the problem).

If your laptop comes with original window, it most probably has made a recovery partition for you. From my experience, I recommend this partition should be deleted, if not it will cause other problem (boot problem, hal.dll error) during the reinstall of window.
First choose the first option, you will be able to go to the window installation (create partition, delete partion page).
Recommendation--- deleted all the partition that set previously, than only create your own partition.

Step 3:
At this stage after u had created your partition, and install the window at the partition that u had select. The window will be restart automatically for the first time. After restart, the window won’t startup and continues the window installation; this time u need boot the flash drive again and choose the 2nd option. If any error (eg. Hal.dll) occur, try using the other option that had stated.

By now this window will continue the installation. After finis the installation, window is now functioning. BUT in this state, you will probably facing a problem that the window can’t boot from the HDD, although the 1st priority had been set at the BIOS to boot from hard disk. For me every time I need to startup into window I need to boot from the flash drive.

Solution---- try using window recovering console, this really help…ok sharing seasons again. As for me, I can boot the recovering console at the window setup page, the solution is I login into window by using my flash drive first, and I make an virtual drive(can be using power ISO) and load the window xp cd (cause hp mini netbook don’t hv cd room) so this step had to be done.

In order to install the window recovering console u can go and
If you have the recovering console the previous step can be skip.

After the console had been install by using the method above, the window recovering console will be able to choose after the system is restart. Then follow the instruction from this link viewtopic.php?f=10&t=366
After finish all this step, window Xp will be able to load up normally from the hard disk of your netbook.

If the window start up screen keep on appears, you can see the reference from this link ... screen.htm

My other references ... 5113920237 ... -disk.html (using other software)

thank you..
