Searched here about HP mini 1000 and about no USB boot option in BIOS. Don't know a thing about netbooks. Kid has HP mini 1000 running XP. /1g RAM /60gb HD. I have heard *buntu has been installed on this but more familiar and prefer PCLOS(LXDE maybe)
Never done a USB install however that may be moot as BIOS shows only one boot device priority option - Toshiba HD (either on or off ).
1. Does the "off" imply the ability to boot from USB?
2. NOT under boot device priority menu, there is an "internal network adapter boot" option (currently disabled) which implies a network installation which I have never done. Is this possible w/PCLOS?
[UPDATE] See I told you I knew nothing about netbooks. Rebooted with a random data USB drive and it shows up in BIOS -
Any experience with PCLOS light desktop on these? Apparently broadcom wireless chip requires BIOS upgrade from Broadcom. Hope not. Don't want to brick the little thing!
I guess now that the boot from USB seem more likely, anyone done a PCLOS install? on this HP mini 1000?
