Hello all, first time poster (previous lurker) here.
I have a bit of a "sacrilegious" issue...
I'd like to revert my Dell Mini 10v (Nichelodeon edition) _BACK_ to a Windows XP machine, and then install an upgrade I have to Windows 7.
It _HAD_ been a Hackintosh, but I've long lost track of which type of installer was used.
I've tried reformatting the drive several times, reinstalling XP Pro several times, and each time the installation doesn't quite work... some drivers just do not function. (i.e.: the Ethernet port!)
My latest theory is that the problem is not on the hard drive, but inside the 10v's firmware/EEPROMs. I'm betting they were modified at the time of the Hackintosh installation.
I now need to:
EITHER set everything back to factory original firmware,
OR modify this to a dual boot machine.
As stated earlier, I do NOT know what the installer was for the initial hackintosh OS X installation.
Can anybody help?
