Just a quick tip. On the EeePC recovery disk is a utility to create a bootable USB drive with the recovery image on there. Very handy if like me you have discovered that the recovery DVD is not as bootable as it should be!!
The program (ToolHelper.exe) to set this up is located in the <DVD>\software\bootTool folder

I thought you just pressed f9 when starting up to get into the factory restore option?

Hi yes we've done this. We followed the instructions in the manuel, so easy to do.

If you want help, you could go about it in a different manner to that! maybe manners would be the first thing to put right before asking for help.
