    Try the "Fresh Install" from this post:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?s=&showto...t&p=2304893

    You'll need:
    Windows XP Home CD (or .iso)
    USB Flashdrive big enough for said CD/ISO
    Another computer to create the bootable USB drive if your netbook doesn't boot into Windows.

    If you are that worried, you could always purchase a portable CD/DVD drive and reinstall Windows XP 'normally'.

    I recently reinstalled XP on my MSI Wind, doing so from USB since I had no external disc drive.

    The install went perfectly, with no issues at all.
    Just follow the instructions and you won't have trouble. [​IMG]
