Remember a thing: there's, on the Mini 10, an infamous chip. Our chipset support PATA, not SATA... But Dell installed a PATA to SATA chip... First it will limit your troughput to 40mb/s...Second it can cause problems like this... Please if you find the way to use x25-v in your mini10 remember to write me... Because I wanted to buy it... But now I will wait for your results...
Please try this, it's the way I use often: do a clean install of win7 on the default hard disk. Take it away, put into a desktop pc, clone it (using a tool like the seagate one) to your ssd
. Put the ssd
in. t should work...
EDIT: Ok I have a an idea... Try using xp drivers during win7 installation! I mean... Install Xp, or better, install Vista on your 40gb ssd
. Then in control panel look at the hd driver, ata channel, ata controller driver and similar. Save on a usb disk all the driver related files. (Are listed on Driver tab, driver details) Then during win7 installation select load a driver... And hope in the Great Will... XD
EDIT2: If win7 doesn't accept these files at install time, do this: after instaled win7 and its bluescreen, take away the ssd
and plug in your desktop. Replace with your driver files from your vista installation every similar file in your hard disk! Then put back in netbook...
EDIT3: Can you tell me first what the bluescreen tell you? It is an atapi.sys error?
