You can reformat your Asus eePC 100h notebook using an Ubuntu Live USB.Here is how to make one:
1. Download an Ubuntu ISO Disk image from www.ubuntu.com or a debian ISO image file from www.debian.com.
2. You can also use an existing Live CD to create an ISO Disk image with if you have a working PC around.Many free tools exist for creating disk images.I suggest Ashampoo Burning studio or CDBurnerXP.Search for them on google.
3.Get your hands on a working PC that has Windows XP/Vista/7 installed on it.
4. Download the UnetBootIn utility from http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/unetbootin-windows-latest.exe.
5.The procedure for creating the Disk Image is as follows:
(a)Requirements:1 GB or larger USB drive, formatted as FAT32(most USB drives come formatted as FAT32 by default, but if you need to format it, on Windows, go to My Computer->right click your USB drive->format.
On Windows XP, you must be logged on as an administrator; on Windows Vista and above, you will be prompted for permissions via UAC. On Windows, the UnetBootIN software looks like this:
Follow the guided prompts on the software to make your Live USB drive, and be careful to select the corrrect linux distribution on the window. When done, safely remove the flashdrive from the PC and plug it in your Asus eeePC 100h notebook. Boot up your notebook and press the F2 Key as the system starts up and select the USB flash drive as the first boot device(You can also do the same from the BIOS setup). When you boot up with the Ubuntu Live USB, select "Try Ubuntu without installing" option to run the Live OS on RAM. When the system boots up completely, go to System>Administration>Gparted and the Gparted Disk utilitty will run. From the Gparted menu, select the appropriate partition you want to format or modify. You can read more on Gparted here. When you are done partitioning and formating your HDD as you desire, you can also install Windows XP/Vista/7 from a FlashDrive by following the instructions below:
1.Get your hands on a working PC with Windows XP/Vista/7 installed. 2.Download the WinToFlash utility from http://wintoflash.com/download/en/ 3.Install the application on the PC. 4.Once you are done,insert a Windows XP CD in the PC's optical disk drive and follow the installation instructions from WinToFlash. By default, the installation path for Windows XP files on the drive is DRIVE LETTER:/Windows/system32. See the screenshot below for more details:
the system doesn't accepts the lower version of windows if you are having the latest version than xp. for thi you must format the two OS softwares and first install lower version i.e., xp and then by dual booting you can also install vista or windows 7. then you can use both versions..
To find if the problem is with the XP disk or the disk unit boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://www.pclinuxos.com/ If you can boot and use without a problem the Linux disk then try using a different XP disk, the one you have now appears to be scratched or faded.
