Yes, f2 and BIOS shows USB Legacy enabled.
With the Win7 USB I have +USB Storage as an option in Boot menu (f12)
With the CD/DVD drive it is not there.
I'm in Win7 now so that have worked it seems that I need to create USB XP installation drive.

EDIT:
I've re-install the NetbookInstaller from my USB OSX and I'm able to dual boot Win7 and OSX with no hassle.
The only thing is that Chameleon choose the OSX as the first to boot I need to press a key to choose Win7.
Is there way to swap it?
If this is possible I will not bother with the XP install.

HI there, just done reading your back and forth thread and problems...my guess if you are trying to re-install windows you will need to first re-format your hardrive. Pretty sure if all was once working before with osx that you had formatted hard drive to a mac format. You will need to format the dell mini 10v to a windows friendly environment before loading windows once again.


Mini 10v/1GB RAM/160GB HD/ BIOS A06/SL 10.6.6
Mini 9 /2GB RAM/ 16GB SSD/BIOS A05/SL 10.6.6
OSX Installation via USB & Mac
NBMaker 0.8.4.RC1 / NBI 20100616212351

nope nope nope

has nothing to do with the drive not booting the disc. he would have to set up a partition for XP, yes, but it would not cause the drive to not be read.

im guessing you had to pick removeable storage, seeing as the bios won't differentiate between drives. HDD would obviously be the hard drive in the machine, CD/DVD would be any optical drives on the machine, removeable disc is anything USB and network is over LAN through the ethernet port. if removeable storage didn't work and legacy USB is on, then theres a problem with the drive i'd imagine. tried the drive, cable and cd on another 10v?
