Post Dell Mini 10 Cannot boot on XP HE sp3 after usb installation
I have an Dell Inspiron Mini 10. I boot on it and the install complete successfully but at the first reboot there is no boot sector found on my hardrive!!!
In fact Iam no able to boot on my computer after install.
and after restart appear on display:

"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 chek the windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware refferance manuals for additional information"
With WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE it is working very good.
I don't have in Bios SATA MODE = IDE
Any suggestions please?

I manage to install Win.
Problems is now that I can boot only from USB.
Windows is starting only when I boot from USB.
If I tried to boot from hardrive I have the same message:"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 chek the windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware refferance manuals for additional information"

I put the same boot.ini in Windows like on my USB and doesn't work.
How can solve this problem, please?

USB boot.ini won't work on hard drive, you have to change rdisk(0) parameter to 0 (1 is for USB)

I also have a dell mini 10 netbook. I am trying to reinstall winxp to it via usb flashdrive(Cruzer USB 2.0 FlashDrive). I used wintoflash to help transfer my winxp disk to the flashdrive. After it is done, I plug the flashdrive in the netbook. Things seem like it is going well,I am saked if I want to install winxp, I click enter. It goes all of the way til it asks me if I agree to the licensing, I tried to click F* but, got no reaction. The lite on the flashdrive didnt go off, it continue fading on and off. What should I do now? The lite fading on and off mean it is still working? or stallled? I need help

Try another Windows CD and other USB drive, may this one is damaged.

So do we know if the following fix with the Boot.ini file worked? I too am having the same issue with my Dell Mini 10. I use wintoflash to make a bootable Flash drive and all goes well.. Get to rebooting and gives me the same Hard ware message. Just goes into endless loop after pressing enter. It will boot to USB but not to hard drive
