I just got this today. Has anyone been able to install Windows onto this via USB? I'm not able to because I get an error message:
"Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information."
What I did:
1) Create usb flash boot drive with Windows Starter 32-bit
2) I changed boot order to USB HDD (netbooks think flash drives are HDDs) and then the netbook's HDD.
3) It boots into installation but I get that error message.
This happened to me before, and I think it's because the netbook detects the USB flash disk as a HDD and Windows Installation doesn't like it when you have other hard drives connected to the computer when installing Windows. Previously, I fixed this on another netbook by switching the boot order and enabled boot from USB. I looked into the Samsung N150's BIOS and there isn't an option to boot from USB Removable Drive. I'm going to keep troubleshooting and will post on here if I can figure it out.
I think I'm going to have to install this from an external DVD drive which I don't have.
edit:I just downloaded a different ISO and it worked fine.
