    EFI Partition on EEEPC

    We've got a load of Asus EEEPC netbooks with Windows XP on a single 160gb partition (imaged)

    These are capable of using the ExpressGate utility but as the imaging wiped the EFI partition off the disk I can't install the Express Gate software, you just get the error 'EFI partition not present'

    Does anyone know how I can re-create the EFI partition on my already installed Windows XP disk, which uses the entire disk for its partition even though it only uses around 25% of the space?

    You could use something like the Gparted live cd to shrink the partition and then use the expressgate utility if avalible to reinstall the partition. You may need to look on the original CDs to find it though as it does not appear to be avalible for download.
