Question about ASUS Eee PC

1 Answer

Running linux system

I just bought this Eee Pc from a tag sale. The previous owner was running Linux system, but I do not like it. Is there any way to change the operating system to Windows Xp? I do not have any discs, nor do I have a cd-rom. Can you Please help?


Thank You

If you want to install windows and you don't have the disks then your going to have to pay for it. There is no other way around it unless your willing to do something illegal to get windows. On the other hand, you can install a more user friendly linux like ubuntu or eeebuntu if it's a mini. If you want to do that then I can help. Let me know.

The os is to frustrating linux is not for me ..xp is what I want .need to get linux out then install xp.


The particular model of Asus is apparently pre-loaded with Xandros Linux operating system.

It appears that you are not familiar with Linux and hence the apprehension and feeling that a shift to XP would be easier.

Why not give Linux a try ? There are a good many websites out there which go through the basics of using a Linux PC. Try them out, by spending some time in learning - you will get far more satisfaction and become more productive in using your laptop.

Some websites which might be of assistance to you are listed below:-

I've forgotten my password for Asus Eee PC 4g


One of the advantage of any Linux OS is its tough security. Im afraid you have to reprogram you machine so that you can use it,  . and then maybe later you run a File Recovery software so that you can latter on recover your important files.
