Hello i have an ASUS Eee pc and i reinstall it all the time.

there is two options, you can either buy a external CD/DVD drive and reinstall windows, or you can install it from USB.

It is quite a pain to reinstall the ASUS however its possible plus paying 200 to get it wiped is far to much.

here are some links that can help you and make sure you have a windows xp disc if you dont have an xp disk i suggest you use a linux distro.

Took OS off my 2 g surf and now want to re-install it. have another 2G to get the OS. How do I get Os off one and onto another?


Hi, which os are you wanting reinstall.
If it is xp , then do you not have the original copy.
If it was Linux/ubuntu then this is free and can be downloaded.
There is this link which may help-
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?model=Eee%20PC%202G%20Surf/Linux&SLanguage=en-us

You should find all software and update on there that may install like it used to be , but not with xp.
You cannot just take an OS from one and put it on another, it is Illegal and will infringe on licence issues with microsoft.
If you need more help, please ask.

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:-

How to reformat ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook?


I have the linux version, not sure if you have the windows version or if it really matters. If you are looking to "reformat", you can go with the other suggestions with the USB stick. However, if you are reformatting to get back to the default settings, power on the computer and immediately hold F9. This will bring you to a screen that gives you the option to "restore factory defaults". You will lose all your previous settings, but if you were reformatting anyway, that's probably not a big concern.
