    If that HP Mini netbook hasn't been used or kept up-to-date since 2002, you're wasting your time with it.

    Windows XP requires its Service Pack 3 upgrade(released in 2008) to be installed before you can update drivers and software.

    Windows XP also went "extinct" in 2014.

    Have you tried a system restore to a date prior to the removal? If it fails when trying from within windows try doing it from safe mode.
