I have a HP mini 1116nr that my girlfriend accidentally compressed my bootmgr and now it is prompting for a warm boot (ctrl alt del). so I searched for an answer and found this site! anyhow I have tried the F11 and esc to go into the system restore and it doesnt work. I did a search for a solution and found "use the cd that came with your PC". well, I would, if my mini had a cd rom ON the mini, and it does not. so I tried making a USB flash for MIE. worked great! Only one small problem, the girlfriend uses this mini all the time (she loves it and I hate it lol) and doesnt have any idea how to use the MIE/Linux that I flashed to the mini, and TBH its not all that user friendly. so, what I am looking for is either a flash recovery image of a windows 7 ultimate 32x system (i have the product key) for a mini or a vista or even an XP recovery image. so if someone would be so kind as to just point me in the correct direction as to where i can find this elusive beast, I can do the work on my own without the step by step walk through. By the way, I know that the HP site has a Flash image for windows, that is the one I used, and I got linux, so if there is ANOTHER site that anyone knows of I would be most appreciative.
Sorry if I sound cynical, but long days at work and being greeted by an irritable girlfriend that cant use her PC for school make for an unhappy Matt.
