Your install media may have been corrupted. Was this a clean install on the new drive or was it a clone from the older drive?
You can download an iso of Windows 7 starter here. Use Rufus with the iso to create a bootable USB flash drive. I believe the mini does not have an optical drive. Attach your USB flash drive and run Rufus on another computer. Use MBR for a partition scheme. Leave all boxes as checked. Where FreeDos is listed in the dropdown box select iso image, click the icon, and browse to the iso of Windows 7 starter edition. Press Start. You will need to have a valid key for the install which should be on the bottom of the HP. A phone activation will be needed.

I think your Office application may be corrupted. If you are not a heavy Office user and do not use many macros I would consider uninstalling Office and installing Softmaker Office Free. I would also activate your Windows 7 starter. Why did you not enter the key during install?
This Office suite has very good compatibility with Microsoft Office.

I don't know if it's available on the Mini but most HP's allow you to do a System Diagnostic by tapping Esc at boot which will give you a selection menu.

If there is a hardware problem like memory or with the HDD the HP diagnostic should be able to flag it.
