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 have the ASUS Eee and was told by Best Buys I have the AVN virus and my Computer will have to be wiped clean. It will cost me 200.00. Is there a less expensive way and Can I do it myself. Side note I...


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.

USB Setup link: http://www.eeeguides.com/2007/11/installing-windows-xp-from-usb-thumb.html
How to install windows step by step: http://www.buildeasypc.com/sw/windows_xp.htm

Linux Ubuntu download and setup : http://www.ubuntu.com/download

The Linux link is pretty much straigh forward and alot easier than the USB Windows how to install i hope this helps if you need any help let me know.

I want to reboot my asus eee pc 900 and i dont have the disc. i was wondering if i could download the reboot somewhere and use a usb to reboot it.


Yes you can - I a m not sure where you can get the original OS for that model, however installing an OS on that model using a bootable USB is possible. Use this link to find instructions on how to for Windows OS's -
http://www.serbanghita.com/install-windows-xp-on-asus-eeepc.html
If I am not mistaken, the original OS on the Asus is a Linux OS which I think will require you to use a program called unetbootin to make the bootable USB. Use this link for unetbootin http://unetbootin.net/
You can also perform the same task using an external hard drive.
Hope this answers your question and helps FixYa! let me know if you have any other questions? Meanwhile, share the love and leave me some feedback!

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.

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.

I have asus 901 Eee PC that came with asus linux, tried to install windows 2000 or XP. i keep getting a blue screen stop error. any suggestions ???


To install windows on the Asus Eee comoputers, you need to install one that is built of linux.

This can be gained by paying an extra $50 when you make your Eee purchase, it is already installed to the computer.

The reason your are getting the blue screen is because these Eee computers are made specifiacly for linus and they cannot cope with your general Xp distro
