I just got my Mini, deleted the partitions to one large one, formatted the harddrive with NTFS, and installed XP with an external CD drive.
The installation process finished without any problems.
Now, when booting, there are always 2 Windows XP Home installations to choose with only one actually working, the other one says something like "Couldn't start Windows because of a harddrive configuration problem...couldn't read from harddrive" when chosen.
The other one works perfectly fine.
After that, I formatted the harddrive again, and noticed there was an additional 8MB partition when asked for deleting the partitions. But in Windows, it just shows up as a large single partition.
I don't want to choose an installation with each boot.
Why do I have two XP installations?
