How do you reformat on a netbook HP mini 110? f6 does nothing on boot.
f6 worked on mine. restore to hp original factory setttings restore point
Couldn't help much, below a basic concept on how to possibly recover / format HP Mini 110 using USB flash drive - WARNING: FOLLOWING METHOD HAD NOT BEEN TESTED, JUST A BASIC IDEA BUT WORTH A TRY-

-- This following step require computer with DVD / CD drive ---
1) Prepare at least 1GB of USB Flash Drive
2) Download & install
A) Imgburn [Freeware]
B) 7zip [Freeware]
3) Open Imgburn > Choose 'Create image file from Files & Folder'
4) Create Image files (.iso) from Operating System CD/DVD
5) Once finished, open the .ISO files with 7zip (right click on that file > 7zip > Extract)
6) Extract .ISO file to USB Flash Drive

--- Go to HP MINI 110 ---
Try to boot from the above Flash Drive
** If necessary, seek possible option (from BIOS) to boot via USB Flash Drive

dancedhall -> You can't. Because first of all, there is no recovery DVD with these laptops, because there aren't any optical drive. You need to make your own recovery DVD by buying à USB optical drive.
