How to Recover an Eee PC
ASUS Eee PCs are equipped with a recovery utility program. (netbook image by mattmatt73 from

Your Eee PC can be restored using either the hidden partition utility or a recovery DVD. Since Eee PC netbooks are devoid of an internal optical drive, restoring your system with the hard drive's recovery utility program is the more convenient option. When utilising the hidden partition, it is not necessary to attach an external optical drive, and the recovery process is faster than the DVD option.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Turn on your Eee PC. Press the "F9" button when the ASUS logo appears on the screen.

  2. 2

    Select the "Recover" option at the system recovery menu.

  3. 3

    Press "Y" to confirm the recovery process. Press "A" to accept and continue to the subsequent screen prompt. Press "Y" at the third prompt to initiate the recovery process.

  4. 4

    Once the recovery process is complete, an onscreen message will prompt you to reboot your computer. Press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Del" if your netbook does not reboot automatically.

Tips and warnings

  • Back up important data files before initiating the system's recovery utility. The process deletes all of the files on your hard drive.
