How do I re-install the operating system for eee pc900hd with no disc or internial disc drive?


Would have liked to have a little bit more information from you ;)
  • What operating system do you have installed?
  • What operating system do you want installed?
If you are willing to try a non MS windows operating system, here is a solution; go to this page:

http://www.ubuntu.com/netbook/get-ubuntu/download

Click on the Start Download button. While downloading, have a look at option 2 "Create a USB drive". Click the appropriate radio button (Win, Mac, Ubuntu), then click the "Show me" button for instructions.

Using this option, you do not need a disc drive, just a USB stick. This software is free so you do not need to purchase a new Windows (or pirate a windows copy).

I use this operating system myself on all my computers and I am very happy with it.

Hope this helps ;)

Computer loads and gives me options to start normal and safe mode and couple of other options. No matter what i pick its starts to load windows and and start all over again


Once you enter the setup and it loads the entire program, then you need to press the R key, which is for repairing the windows installation. This action will take you to the dos mode where further processing will be done. In the dos mode, system will ask you about installation place. Most of the people install their operating system in the C drive, which comes at number 1 option, so you need to press option 1. However, if you have so many partitions or you have installed the operating system then you need to choose the option according to your drive name. Here you need to enter your password as well, but if you have not set any password then you can simply press enter.
*Then there will be a c:\WINDOWS> command in a dos mode where you need to write, "Copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\windows. However, if you have different place of your installed operating system then you will write the address of that drive. This is the whole process and now you can eject the cd and can press exit to restart the system. Now this process will copy the correct NTLDR file from installation disk to your hard drive by making your system in the working condition.

I want to format my pc but not sure how to.it was easy on my old lap top but this one i cant seem to figure it out


what operating system are you installing?
Go into bios at start up; press del or f1 and set your DVD drive to be the first boot option. Put your operating system install disc in the DVD drive and save and exit bios. When the PC restarts it will ask you if you want to boot from CD. hit a key to start from CD. The operating system will begin to install and give you the option of where to install. At this stage you can also select to format the hard disk make partitions or delete them. On Win7 and vista these options are available when you choose advanced from the hard disk selection screen.

My computer shuts down acer programs wont run


If your computer has preinstalled recovery options:



1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, click the arrow next to the Lock button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Restart.
2. Do one of the following:
• If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
• If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu as a preinstalled recovery option.)
4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
5. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.
6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.

Switching between operating systems


If both operating systems are properly installed, you should have a boot menu that allows you to choose which OS to load. If you dont have this option, then there is a problem. Which of the two OSs was installed first?
