Unhappy Windows XP Reinstall - 03-19-2010, 11:32 AM

My Mini 9 came with a 8GB SSD and is now corupted. I just installed a new Active Media 32GB Sabertooth AA Half Mini PCIe SSD. The Mini 9 will not boot up from my USB CD/DVD drive. The USB drive worked on the Mini before but not now. I have set the BIOS to look at USB Storage and also set the boot up option to CD/DVD/CD-RW but it just will not boot. HELP! Any Suggestions?

Is "Legacy USB Support" enabled in the BIOS? Will it boot from CD with the SSD removed? What does the BIOS report the model and size of the SSD as?
