asus eeepc 4g
Can anyone help please,i was given an asus eeepc 4g.It has been wiped by the looks of it.
I was given the recovery disc..linux rev 1.5.
I have loaded this with a dvd rom drive attatched by usb port but it comes up with boot device disabled,
cant get anywhere with it
when i tried to factory restore it using f9 it comes up with mkfs.ext3 no such device or adress?
Is this is the 701 or Surf 4G? If so I made the recovery USB stick from the CD/DVD in Windows and recovered the system from a USB stick. You could give that a go rather than trying to boot directly from a USB DVD.
Those Eee PCs work well with Debian - I have a test machine here with an initial text-only install of Debian on with the XFCE window manager added afterwards. The original restore disk is probably rather out of date by now. You might need to change your BIOS settings so your USB DVD drive is the first item on the boot devices list.

Works well enough considering they only have 4gb of disk space you can't really fit much on them. I tried integrating them into AD but they quickly ran out of disk space for new user profiles.
