Why all these clueless suggestions? I came here looking for help, but it appears I'll be solving my own problem and lend a hand. First attach something bootable via USB like you already know. Change boot order and boot from some kind of XP install disk. That's where I'm at right now. I'm now in the recovery console which gives me a command line. I had JUST READ somewhere the comand line commands to restore the boot manager that we just compressed.
Hold on....OK ! Problem fixed.
Step by step:
1)Get external CD reader and plug into USB
2)Boot Mini hit F10 or F12, whatever it says to change boot order
3)Reboot and you'll see you now have option to change boot order on bootup.
4)Boot to some kind of XP start disk(stupid me never even looked at HP's recovery disk yet - I didn't want to go there!)
5)Let the startup program run til it stops asking you to select an option, and hit R for recovery console
6)You'll want option 1 for c:/windows and type your password when asked
6)type fixboot then enter
7)It will happily inform you that your boot record is repaired
There may be some warnings or statements in between. You're desperate - agree to whatever they say! ;-)
9)Don't worry, be happy
If you can't stand that you now have that message booting up every time and it looks weird, RIGHT click my computer, properties, advanced, startup and recovery settings, and edit ....change default operating system from ** to Microsoft Windows XPHome etc."
click edit and for good measure delete where it has WINDOWS="" as an operating system. Don't mess with this if you're not sure.
10)Now be happy!
