Re: Eee pc 4gb was Linux, now Win XP. I want to reinstall Linux but no option to boot
I use an eee PC 1000, my first linux computer, and it took me a long time to work out that there was a 16Gb drive waiting to be used. I now have Lubuntu 12.04 on it with the /usr directory sharing the 16GB drive with the /home directory which seems to work pretty well.
On mine, when you go into the BIOS and select boot, the 'select boot' option doesn't show up a USB or SD card unless you first go into the item below which allows you alter the order of HDDs - can't be more specific since I am using the machine at the moment!
If you put whatever you want to boot from a first hdd then it should show up in the 'select boot' list. In my experience I have to do this every time I want to boot from a card or USB, it reverts to the standard setting.
Some of that may apply to your machine -if not, sorry if I've confused you further!
Pentium 4, 2.4 GHz 1.5GB RAM
Computers are my mid-life crisis - it could have been worse!
