Updating bios eee pc 4g
So, today when I went to overclock the FSB on my Eee PC, as I have been doing for the past week or so, everything went crazy and when I rebooted the Eee, I was met with the picture above. When the start up screen appears again, hit Esc and choose your external USB CD/DVD drive from the list of options. You’ll have to delete the internal drive’s partition before Windows will let you format and install. After installation is fully complete and Windows has rebooted, slap teh DVD that came with your Eee PC into the DVD-ROM drive and run the Install All drivers wizard. Also, I’ll finally be able to run the software that came with my [Sony Portable Reader]. I am a father, a husband, a blogger, a parrot owner, a pug owner, and the Chief Product Officer for You Earned It. If you want to talk to me, send me an @cksample on Twitter.
I then rebooted again in recovery mode, and no matter what I tried, I could not resurrect xwindows, given my novice level linux skills. So, instead of reinstalling Ubuntu, I went ahead and installed XP on the Eee. Because I have a legal copy lying around unused and because I was going to have to install XP anyway to take advantage of the touchscreen panel I plan on installing on this sucker (it’s ordered and *should* arrive on Monday; w00t). Make sure your XP installation disk is in the drive before moving on. Remember to hit a key when the little text pops up saying “Hit any key to boot from CD…” or whatever it says. If you like this post, feel free to buy me something off of my wishlist.
Fortunately, Asus included all drivers to install Windows XP, making possible to run VEGA ZZ.
Due to the small SSD (Solid State Disk) storage system, the installation procedure requires attention to reduce the waste of disk space.
It took me quite a long time to create, and I hope it helps a lot of people in their quest to run a stable, fast, and small XP install on the Eee PC.
What You'll Need A Windows XP CD-ROM (Home, Pro, etc.), a Windows XP cd key, an external CD-ROM drive for installation on the Eee PC, a CD burner, a blank CD, a copy of n Lite (free), an Eee PC, a couple hours.
Plug in an external DVD drive via USB (I had a Newertech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter lying around so I picked up a cheap Panasonic internal drive from Best Buy and used that). Start your Eee and Hit F2 at the Asus start up screen, so that you can change some settings in the BIOS.]]
My final install comes in at only 537MB, and takes around 17 seconds to start up from power button press to desktop.
Von einem BIOS-Flash im Akkubetrieb kann ich nur abraten.
Einen USB-Stick mit dem Computer verbinden und in dem soeben entpackten Archiv im Order bestätigen.
Besides, all the programs I was using regularly in Ubuntu (Firefox and Pidgin) are available for Windoze and I can install a few Windoze games on here now if I really want to (I have a 16GB flash drive I’m going to be installing internally when I add the touchscreen).
In any case, installation of XP on the Eee is simple: 1.
