I had the same problem with my HP Mini model 1151NR. I called HP and received no help because my contract had expired, however I was able to find the instructions on their website. The instructions are pretty much accurate. Click on the link below to take you to the page, or follow the intructions below. Hope this helps you and anyone else experiencing this issue. *Note: You do not need to an optical drive to do this. A thumb drive works fine.
