what you can do is find a windows 7 pro upgrade disk,
and a windows XP pro dell iso.
first to clean the HDD install ubuntu/linux and use the entire HDD
then install xp, download and install all drivers.
after that use the windows 7 pro upgrade iso to install windows 7 pro, and use the key provided on the system.
since the bios can sometimes nag about the iso, and the current system, this is the best way to install it,

this was in my case on my mini 910

dell mini 910
supertalent dual wide ssd 128GB
2GB ddr2 400mhz ram
Realtek RTL8188SU
(not the 3G version)
hdd cooler as extra cooling
