Found some interesting links, with exaclty the same problem.
Although it has to do with a Dell Mini 9 netbook.
But when looking at the specs of this netbook, it seems that is has the same cpu and chipset, isn't it ?
I found the solution for this Problem.
Add switch in the Boot.ini: /forceresetreg
Example of the Bootini:
[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /forceresetreg
