Why oh why did Asus partion this way and how can I fix the problem without repartioning the drives which would be a nightmare as the operating system etc came alreadsy installed with no recovery disc.

I installed linux ubuntu remix on my ASUS Eee 1001PXB-BK301 multiboot, then i deleted ubuntu after not using it anymore using windows xp disk mangement and found myself without a mbr with grub saying grub...


What you need is SATA controller drivers to be downloaded while starting windows xp disk or ERD Commander.
Since Asus Eee does not have an internal Floppy Disk Drive (FDD), you need to use an external USB FDD.:
Step one: You would like to connect an external USB FDD.
Step two: copy scsi/sata Hardware Access Layer (HAL) Drivers for you laptop to a floppy disk
Step three: during the XP boot process press F6 and follow the prompts to insert a floppy disk with HAL scsi/sata drivers.
Step four: Finish the boot process and run fix MBR.

There is another easy way:
If you can get a Knoppix USB flash drive, you can boot it up from Knoppix and run the following command in the terminal window: sudo ms-sys -m /dev/sda.

Hope This Helps

I HAVE AN ASUS EEE PC 900 WITH WINDOWS XP AND NO CD ROM IT HAS A VIRUS AND I AM TRYING TO REBOOST FIRST SO I WILL BE ABLE TO GO ONLINE TO DOWNLOAD NORTON 360


Have you tried booting safe mode? If you boot safe mode and cannot get rid of the virus, you NEED an external cd rom or a USB jump drive so you can boot from it and use something like ERD Commander, Hiren Boot USB, etc.
Or open the eee pc and remove the SATA hard drive and connect it ot another computer and run the virus scan, remove the virus and put it in again.
I hope this helps.

Hi! how do i format my asus laptop to re-install windows xp


How to Format a Hard Drive with Windows XP
  1. To format a hard drive with Windows XP or 2000, insert Windows CD and restart your computer.

  2. Your computer should automatically boot from the CD to the Windows Setup Main Menu.

  3. At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.

  4. Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.

  5. If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.

  6. Use the ARROW keys to select the partition or the unpartitioned space where you want to create a new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition.

  7. Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.

  8. Select the format option that you want to use for the partition (Recommended: NTFS), and then press ENTER.

  9. After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to continue installing Windows.

Always need disk cleanup


Open up the Computer icon and right-click on your c: drive. Then click on Properties, then on Disk Cleanup. Once this has completed, you might want to run Defrag as well, in Tools, then Defrag, then Defrag Now. You might also think about Drive Compression too, to make more effective drive room.

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.
