    trying to boot through a optical drive I keep getting to 46% and stops. It says it can't read the ghosteer.txt file and that there are the same bad sectors each time on the ssd. Tech support said to down load a disk tool from segate and ran 7 times, each coming back as ok. Then tech sent out a new start up and same has happend as before.

    Signed frustated!

Here is the web site that explains this:
http://www.eeeguides.com/2007/11/installing-windows-xp-from-usb-thumb.html

I tried this on my laptop when my cd drive was non-functioning. You have to have another pc with a functioning cd drive and a XP cd. I didn't follow any instructions for using nLite ( not sure what it is anyway ) and when I followed all the instructions, I was able to boot from the USB stick and install XP without a hitch.

Im getting a disk read error and eee pc 900 notebook wont even boot up. i mean not show windows at all. i have windows xp. need help


It's a hardware failure - the hard disk has died. You will have to replace it then reinstall using an external cd unit and an XP install disk - ideally the recovery disk should be used.

Asus eee pc 900HD running XP. need to restore to factory settings. F9 nor any F key seems to do much for me.


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/

HP Compaq 6910p New hard drive installed, XP os canot see the hard drive, asking for driver. ? where can i get it and how do i install it. Yours Steve


Method 1 :  Go to BIOS and set anything with SATA disable (usually find uns=der advance setting in IDE configuration setting).
Save the setting.

Windows Xp will detect your hard drive now.

Method 2 : This days BIOS comes with only few thing to configure.if that's is the case.
Download SATA driver,here is the link

http://download.cnet.com/SATA-Driver-Intel-Ver-7-0-0-1020-zip/3000-2122_4-162224.html

you need one more software called "nlite" in order to integrate the SATA driver in Windows XP CD so that it recognize SATA drives.

Here is the link for nlite download

Eee pc 900 XP wont enter the windows menu


ok first thing is to calm down and wipe out the computer.It seems you have a windows crash and re-installing a fresh copy should solve this problem.If you do not have one then go on google and search for ubuntu 9.04, download and put on a cd and put cd in pc and install new open source o/s.Its free and requires no licence nor any need to buy anything, unless you have a license copy of windows.

hi,
most of the times if laptop or Desktop cpu falls then HDD is the very first part to be damaged.
You can try any third party software as partition magic or DM for formating the drive.

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.
