That's weird. You surely have tried the basic voodoo: Disable USB Legacy and Wake from USB in the BIOS, re-run Netbookinstaller and reboot?

Some info on your system might be useful: BIOS version, OS version, install type? Maybe your Mini is on an older BIOS that doesn't like the newer installs (A05 is latest, IIRC).

Can you boot from some other OS and make sure it's not a hardware issue?
