Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook
In that case you can't restore the machine from the recovery that comes with it, you would need either a USB stick or a USB dvd drive to perform the install from an original windows disc.
You did not say if the laptop has linux or windows 7 starter.
To reinstall windows 7 starter, you need to use another computer to make that special usb stick with the contents of the windows 7 DVD. Or you can use a USB CD-DVD drive to install from the windows 7 DVD.
Making the usb stick will be much more complex compared to using a external dvd drive.
I've written instructions on how to install windows 7 here
Before you go get into installing windows 7 from the external drive you need to enter the bios of the computer to change to boot order so that the USB CD ROM is the first device the computer attempts to start up from instead of the hard drive. After that you can follow the instructions on the above linked page. In the windows 7 setup you must select the version of windows that you have the key for, if the machine came with a w7 starter, you need to take that, since the key in the bottom of the laptop will only work with that edition.
If you have any questions or anything, add a comment and I'll respond as soon as possible.
