I installed this on my MIE Mini 1000 and it works great. And, though I like it better than the MIE OS, I really would like to be able to restore MIE. Now, installing Linux Mint IS NOT what fouled up my MIE restore image, it was installing Windows 7, which I actually believe to be inferior to Linux Mint. I still have the restore image on my computer, but I cannot get it to boot. HP's customer service is mostly unhelpful when it comes to the Mini 1000 MIE edition, so if you here anything about the HP Image Restore creator becoming available, or some alternative, please don't hesitate to let me know.
