My wife drives an Echo which is the predecessor to the Yaris and was actually called a Yaris in Europe. We will probably replace it with a Yaris when (if ) the time comes to buy a new car.

Re: Need a format utility that can boot from usb

You could make a bootable USB stick with Acronis True Image bootable rescue media on it which should allow you to format and partition the SSD.

I have done this to make a backup of my Mini 9's SSD...

Re: Dell Mini Roadmap

There is nothing in this that makes me want to trade up from a Mini 9.

I was hoping that Dell would have something like the ASUS t91 or t101 tablets in their new line-up.

If the t101 comes out...

Re: Mini 9 with Windows XP - Clean Installation necessary?

That is what I did and I have been happy with the result. I originally planned to do a re-install but thought I would let it run for a while before doing so. I never really felt the need to do the...

Re: Want to reinstall XP on Mini 9

I have bought 5 or 6 Dells including the Mini 9 and every one of them has included a full OS system install CD. I have never had a "recovery" disk from Dell and that is a major selling point for me.
