Default Sup guys got a mini 12 - installing XP right now. - 06-29-2009, 04:23 AM

Hey guys, I literally JUST got my mini 12. Found a guy on craigslist selling for really cheap!.

I got the 1.3ghz 60gb hdd 6 cell model.

Its currently got ubuntu, im formatting my jump drive to do an XP Pro on it and copying the XP cd right now.

Anyone know if the Dell XP Pro restore CD will recognize the BIOS and install without a CDkey?

I'm using FAT32 so I can do a straight install from the jump drive without bartPE or any other software. Wish me luck!!!

sweeeet! unfortunately I ran into some issues with my boot disc - looks like either the drive has been dropped or my format commend corrupted the partition.
