Can't reflash Netbook


Aug 27, 2014
Recently picked up one of those cheap Chinese 9 inch netbooks at a car boot sale. The system is really low spec - 128 mb memory and 1 gigabyte NAND Flash drive. No Cd. It was meant to be running Windows Ce.

On boot up the system displays the boot up screen and is locked there.

I've tried rebooting with a linux boot up SD card and USB memory stick and with a Windows Ce SD card and memory stick, but the system doesn't recognise either device and returns to the main screen.

In plain English I think the system is 'bricked' and I'd like to try and resurrect it - not so much for everyday practical use but more as a learning experience.

Any ideas anyone?
