when I had initially bought my Asus Eee PC 1005PE Netbook, Windows 7 was already pre-installed. No installation disc came with it.
After a year, I decided to install Ubuntu operating system - and unfortunately, did not keep the Windows partition. So, there is no Windows partition (NTFS) on my Netbook.
I have also upgraded my Ubuntu to Ubuntu 11.10, which is the current operating system running on this Netbook.
Now, I am considering to get back to Windows 7.
I know how to make a bootable USB from which I "could" boot, but what I do not know is which kind of Windows 7 I do need to have on this bootable USB device in order for my Ubuntu-Netbook to correctly boot from it.
I have tried Windows 7 Starter Edition, have created the bootable USB device containing the .ISO file -
further, I have set up the BIOS settings in a way to boot from the removable device first -
.. but it just would not boot from the USB device I do see that the Netbook is trying to boot from the removable device first (takes longer until it starts Ubuntu) - but, it just would not come up with any Windows screen. After a while, it keeps starting Ubuntu 11.10.
I know how to look up the existing partition table in Terminal, etc. .. so if you need any of this information please, let me know.
Would appreciate any help and support.
Thank you very much.
