I was delighted to receive my mini 10 for Christmas (8bg hd, Ubuntu) and decided to upgrade the system to Windows XP pro. Initially I tried to do this via a memory stick but that was unsuccessful. The system seemed to be installing but came to a grinding halt after a few minutes. I bought a removeable CD drive and installed successfully throught that.
However, when the system boots up, I am given two options to install windows, both looking identical. The first option is the default one which boots the machine, but if I select the second option, I get the same error message as I did when I unsuccessfully installed xp. It seems as though it's on there twice!
I also notice that with only a couple of programmes loaded (around 1/2 GB total), a massive amount of disc space has been used - a little under 5 GB!
I have read posts from other members about the Page File setting, and to check whether hibernation is on, but I doubt whether this will explain all the missing space.
Can anyone help? And does anyone know how I can delete the frist screen, giving me the two identical power-up options?
