    I Have a HP Mini 210 and I got it from someone and it had hard drive problems so I got a new hard drive but it has Windows 7 on it, so I formatted it and installed Ubuntu on it. I now see that I should have gone with XP,it is just so much better but I don't know how to install XP on it successfully since I don't have a CD-ROM Drive and no access to a USB CD Drive. If someone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Britt Morris

    i would guess best action would be to get someone to boot xp on another PC HDD and then place into your own, will have to change a few drivers but should be able to get from web
    long live xp:)

    Which model number(M/N) HP Mini 210 netbook do you have?
    (Note: a dash and additional characters after 210 comprises the model number)

    What is the exact product number(P/N) and serial number(S/N) on yours?
