You need to delete all partitions first. Yes even the one that says BIOS. It is really a recovery partition for the factory Xandros Linux.

Password


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

How do i reset my 2g surf back to factory settings


You can download a windows password reset tool and create a windows password reset disk with it. Few days ago I downloaded a program named Windows Password Reset 9.0 and I successfully reset the forgotten password with the disk.

On my asus eee pc 2g surf it says "missing operating system reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key" please help!


It sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Make sure you don't have any CD/DVDs in the drive if that model has one and you don't have any USB devices plugged in at boot.

Asus Eee PC 2G Surf netbook fails to boot into OS


 Unfortunately Xandros is a paid (yes, you have read correctly , PAID) Linux distro. You will have to pay to get a Live-USB to reinstall.
Instead you should go here
http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,46097.0.html
  and follow the instructions to create your own PCLinuxOS (the one i use) Live-USB. You will need another pc for that. After booting from it all you're gonna have to do is to click on the Install icon on the desktop.

I cannot remember my password for my 2G EEE PC


Use Wininternals ERD Commander create a boot CD from the archive file and boot then change the BIOS to boot CD first. Use the application into Locksmith mode, you can then reset your password.

Asus Eee PC 2G series will not boot up


Try to unplug the battery, wait 10-15 seconds and plug it again. Sometimes it gets stucked with hardware issues and this is a kind of "reset". It doesn't affect your data.
