Hey sinn - First thing to do is get into the BIOS and set it to boot from the CD. When your system boots there is a quick message like press F2 or Delete to enter setup. Go to the boot sequence and make sure the cd is listed to boot before your hard drive. Make sure your Windows cd in the cd drive. If it boots, then select a new install. Then delete all the partitions on the hard drive (C:)and create a new one. Then select it to install the OS on. Sounds complicated, but take your time and read every screen carefully before you press "Enter".

If you can't get it to boot, then go to http://bootdisk.com and download a boot diskette image. Any Windows 9X will do, just make sure it has CD support included. Create the diskette(s), change to the CD drive and run setup.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet just add a comment letting me know you need more help and I'll be glad to assist you. Let me know what happens. Thanks.

Can't factory restore with dual boot system.


I run Windows 7 and also sometimes Fedora 16, Backtrack 5 and Ubuntu. Problem with reinstalling windows is it will write over the GRUB loader and you wont have linux there anymore. You are meant to have Windows first then install linux afterwards so you have the option of both.

Backup any files that you need and reinstall Windows then reinstall Linux. Its too much effort and mucking around to do it the other way even though it can be done

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!

Dell OS CDs are OEM versions which mean you can not install them on any other systems. Sorry for the bad news.

The os is to frustrating linux is not for me ..xp is what I want .need to get linux out then install xp.


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:-

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.
