sorry for bad english.

have one try to run ReactOS on Asus EEE subnotebook. with 2-8gb flashdisk maybe the perfect hardware basis for reactos!

win xp support run out near future, vista to fat for umpc -> Reactos, the perfect choice :twisted: (or linux)

install from USB cd/dvd drive?

Postby tomleem » Mon Nov 26, 2007 3:53 pm

If one can install ROS from an USB cd/dvd drive, it would be possible to install ROS onto the Asus EEE PC. I have an Asus EEE PC and the manuel shows how to install WinXP onto it using a cd/dvd drive (one must buy or have WinXP on a cd/dvd to install it but the drivers for EEE PC comes on a disc that comes with the computer).

I am still having fun with the Asus EEE PC. Perhaps one day in the future, I will try installing ReactOS onto it. :lol: 8)

There is another part of the forum that discusses the Asus EEE PC.

http://forum.eeeusers.com Here is a forum for users of the EEE PC. I asked if they could add an 'other' for those interested in ROS. :idea: 8)

threat of lawsuite from MS?

Postby tomleem » Wed Nov 28, 2007 7:33 pm

I hope they don't get the threat of a lawsuit from Microsoft over alleged patent infringments by Linux. 8)

Walletex and REactOS?

Postby tomleem » Sat Dec 08, 2007 7:03 pm

Could one install ROS onto this USB drive and either use ROS from it or install from it? It would be neat to see the ROS logo on it. :idea: :?:

Could it be used to either run or install ROS from it? :idea: :?:

Optical Illusinon

Postby tomleem » Mon Dec 10, 2007 1:53 am

It was an optical illusion. It only appeared to be part of the other.

This might be better than the other one.

It seems multi-purpose. 8)

You don't get a very good idea of it from that angle. Presumably that's a standard-thickness USB attachment. So, is the card as thick as the attachment?
If so, it seems impractically thick. If not, then the shape is a bit funny, and gives the impression of being a bit fragile.
Either way, I don't think USB memory devices were meant to come in credit card size.
But I guess it will work with ReactOS about as well as any other USB flash drive.

'other os' section added

Postby tomleem » Thu Dec 20, 2007 3:27 am

They added an 'other os' section at the EEE user forum.

OT; I think USB drives will (eventually) replace floppy disks. I think it is the future of portable storage. :idea:

Curiosity offtopic:
How much the Asus EEE in your country?

I think it here (Argentina) is expensive:
White Asus 4GB without camera, Celeron M, 512MB RAM, Screen 7''
U$S 500

Cost in USA

Postby tomleem » Thu Dec 20, 2007 9:05 pm

The cost for the Asus EEE PC 701 was about $400 plus about $35 for shipping and handling. 8) I bought it at Buy.com with Googlecheckout.com (IIRC on the URL's). 8) It is white. It has a webcam.
