I figured this would be a good time to make a guide specifically for you in the same situation as I was. Your Free for One Year Windows 7 Key and Release Client DVD-ISO can be downloaded from here: N270 ATOM processor does not support x86_64 (amd64) extensions, so you’re going to want to grab the 32bit version. Step 3: Install Windows 7 The installation is actually remarkably straight forward.
I went to Asus's download page and all they offer is a zipped file. I don't know the features available on your BIOS and your EEE PC probably doesn't have a disc drive, so I recommend using the Ultimate Boot CD (if you want to save the disc, you could even boot UBCD off a pen drive).
Here's a forum thread that should help you on the UBCD site.
Of course it could be due to the fact that I chose the smallest possible partition size of just 8mb, but I doubt it. I don't want to end up with a dead device after all. Yes, I have read the wiki, however there are no method described that I'm comfortable with.
Of course I've been reading up on alternative methods of flashing the bios, but either they are extremely complicated or there are other reasons that I'm not ready to give them a try. (suppose I'll have to eventually though)And thanks for the quick reply. I don't want to end up with a dead device after all.
Not sure how often == i wanted to update my daughther's eee PC I am unfamiliar with Linux.
I want to upgrade my little daughter's eee PC, because Firefox is very outdated.
So running compact is not neccesary if you do not want to.
Step 4: Drivers and Optimisation Drivers Windows 7 actually detects more hardware directly after install than Windows XP does.
Hotkey Service: Run “Hotkey Service_1.11.01.exe” V.
Super Hybrid Engine: Run “Super Hybrid Engine_2.09.exe” XII.
All of the hardware detects normally except the ASUS ACPI driver.
