I have seen many Youtube videos about the various Eee PC machines andIn Ken Blake typed:
I have one EeePC 701 and two 702s (all with 2GB of RAM). And I put
Windows 7 on one 702. It was huge mistake. As Windows 7 ate up 50% of
the processor at idle. Running anything required lots of patience and
XP does run very well on such machines though. And Windows 2000 even
runs faster. Windows 2000 is even faster than any Linux distro I have
ever ran. Plus Windows 2000 is Windows compatible while Linux is not.
some about installing Win7. I haven't seen any about how these
upgrades run so I am glad I posted here and thank you for your reply.
I am also surprised just how many versions there are out there now.
some of the newer ones I see come with Win7 starter of which I am
totally unfamiliar with. I haven't used 2000 in several years and
didn't know it was still being used. I could possibly drag out an
install and see how it runs if it would be worth the effort of getting
familiar with that OS again. So far I am happy to see my 1000HD
operating fast again. I am unable to restore it to factory settings as
F9 does not bring up that option. I see nothing in BIOS ver. 1401 that
references that either. I am wondering if by cloning the original
drive to the SSD if somehow that changed anything.
