Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:
"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer." If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download
a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.
b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.
Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.
c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.
Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"
d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.
e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.
f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option. g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands: bootrec.exe /fixmbr bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message) bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd
h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.
i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".
These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.
J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window.
Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.
This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.
Hope this helps. Keyfinder Thing's simple, easy-to-understand interface has Wizard-like efficiency.

OK, here is what you need to do, you need to get a USB - DVD dongle, either SATA or IDE. Similar to this at this link. http://cgi.ebay.com/USB-2-0-TO-SATA-IDE-ADAPTER-CABLE-4-DVD-CD-HARD-DRIVE_W0QQitemZ220544495390QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_2?hash=item335979ef1e#ht_4098wt_1152 Get your recovery DVD, put it into the DVD. Then, set the eeepc to "BOOT" from removeable media. The PC should then boot of the DVD and you can then install OR repair the install. I have included a link that gives you a step by step. http://www.sampletheweb.com/2008/01/05/installing-windows-xp-on-the-asus-eee-pc/

Hi. Actually when you restore your system to its factory settings it will restore everything on your computer including the original operating system, but if you're saying that you have installed windows 7 on it then try going to ASUS driver support website, just type in their the model of your machine and it will ouput every software and drivers available for laptop and also different versions of operating system, So just choose the correct OS version for your laptop. Hope this Helps

ASUS netbooks have a Boot Booster which renders all activity obsolete, you need to disable the boot booster first.
First you need to access the BIOS/Setup Utility, on an ASUS machine/Motherboard you need to hit "Del" or "F2" not F9 at this stage.
Once in the Setup Utility, using your arrow keys navigate to the Boot options page. Using down arrow key navigate to Boot Booster option and hit Enter to disable. Once the option is disabled navigate to the last tab Exit, and using down arrow key to navigate to Exit and Save Changes.
Your laptop will then reboot and as soon as it does you may start to hit "F9" which will start the Factory Settings utility. You can then follow the on screen instructions to continue wit the resetting of your machine.

SOURCE: f9 wont help to restore
Use System Restore.
Open System Restore by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clickingAccessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking System Restore. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Choose the first system restore point to restore factory settings.

Tips for a great answer:
Restart your ASUS laptop and press the "F9" key while the computer is booting up. This will open the boot screen. Select "Recover Windows to Entire HD" and press "Enter."
Press "Y" three times when asked if you are sure that you want to restore. The laptop will restore the factory settings. The computer will then shut down and start up again.
Approve the license agreement, then select your "Language preference." Enter your name into the box and click "Next."
Enter your password twice on the next screen and select "Next." Enter the time zone and date information, then select "Next." Select "Finish" on the next screen and the computer will reboot.
