    "but after finish it cannot start but it can start in safe mode"... This is caused by a bad driver. Did you use a external flash drive or CD drive to install Windows? Does this mini have a mechanical hard drive or an SSD drive?

    Is the hard drive mechanical or is it a Solid State Device?

    "My pc have two windows xp 32bit and xp 64bit, I install xp 32bit first"... Why 2 versions of XP? Delete the 32-bit version's partition
