After the hibernation problem I had a few weeks ago, successfully solved thanks to you, I have now another problem, a more serious one, yet I have the feeling the solution is close :
I just bought an entry level HP notebook for my Dad, a HP510, and I have the following problem : at first boot, a windows (low-res) appears asking me to chose between French or US Windows XP, French being selected by default. I am supposed to be able to change the choice with up and down arrow keys, and validate with enter. Alas none of these keys seem to be operative.
I have tried using an externel USB keyboard, same problem (enabling and disabling USB legacy support). I finally booted with BartPE CD and observed that the keyboard was OK.
I moved the content of the root folder to a backup dir, I moved the content of what seemed the French XP install files (including NTLDR, and similar critical files) and guess what : it started OK with a French XP and installation of Hp specific software seem to work. But I may have missed something. Anyone already encountered such a problem ?
