Ok well received a cute little hp mini 110 with windows XP. PROBLEM IS. It’s stuck in the activation loop with it also rebooting straight into safe mode. I’ve tried all the command via F8 and boots to same . I’ve tried just about every key combo And for a minute was able to access very limited options thru narrator (clicked on link that says Microsoft help or whatever ) to which it took me to IE And was able to go thru and open a file or two but then pop up saying can’t activate in safe more restart in normal to activate etc etc and noW that’s not allowing me to enter either.
Anyone got any suggestions or ideas !? I’d like to use windows 7 on it if possible but idk how imma even get in
Also mini hp doesn’t have a cd drive so kinda stuck. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Hi @Essy ,

    Windows XP is currently not supported in the Q&A forums, the supported products are listed over here https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/products (more to be added later on).

    You can ask the experts in the dedicated Windows XP forum over here:
