While traveling through Europe, I bought an Asus X101CH with Ubuntu 12.04 preloaded. While starting it up for the first time, it got interrupted and now the computer says "Missing operating system." I haven't tried a basic Ubuntu install because it may have proprietary drivers or other software that I'd like to test out.
I'm in contact with Asus, but their support knows nothing about Ubuntu. They want me to send it in because they only have recovery DVD's for Windows.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to (a) where I might get an Asus image of 12.04? or (b) anyone in Ausus support who knows something about Linux?
