I thought that some of you could benefit from this
There are a few ways to install a new os on an eee pc but I believe that the easiest way is the following I did:
What I used:
1. Asus eee pc 901 with Ubuntu 11.10
2. Kingston 8gb DataTraveller (smaller will do of course)
How I did it:
I downloaded the iso-file from ubuntu’s website at http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
[UPDATE] Ubuntu 12.04 might be slow on the older eee pc’s like my 901 so you might want to try Xubuntu instead http://xubuntu.org/getxubuntu/ The installation should be the same as on the basic Ubuntu version.
after that I plugged my usb to the laptop and started the Startup Disc Creator -program which is defaultly installed on ubuntu.
I clicked the “Other…” button and located the downloaded iso file.
I checked that the creator used my Kingston on the “Disc to use:” option.
Next part doesn’t really matter which one…
