low engine oil issue?

When engine oil is low (about 1/4 above lowest level) and one gives the mini a hard drive, is it possible for oil to be blown out of the pcv hose (one on the left)?

The oil should not be blown out of anywhere on the engine unless you have split/ill fitting hoses or its massively overfilled or pressurised for some reason.
Have you checked for splits in the hose ? If its ok you need to look at reasons for excessive crankcase pressure ( I have read other questions you have asked about oil being sprayed out onto the engine) it may be just a simple breather problem but I think you need to get it checked by a garage
