Asus Will Not Ship Recovery Disc with Eee PC Anymore

Finally, Asus came to their senses and decided to stop manufacturing and shipping those “useless” recovery DVD that come with every package of the  Eee PC. The reason why I said this is useless is because Eee PC doesn’t really come with a DVD Drive, so you can only use it if you have a external DVD drive.

Come to think of it, how many Eee PC users actually purchase a DVD drive for use with their Eee PCs? Or better yet, how many users have actually used the Eee PC Recovery DVD to restore their netbooks?

But of course, there might come a time when you’d probably need that DVD to restore your netbook settings. Well, the good news is you can actually do so without using the DVD. All you have to do is press the F9 key and you’re good to go.

So, the next time you purchase an Eee PC, don’t fret out if you can’t find the recovery DVD anymore. Asus finally realized that the environment is being endangered everytime they manufacte those DVDs.

    Tell me how well that F9 trick works out for you the next time your hard drive dies and has to be replaced. I, for one, have actually used the recovery DVD packed with my Eee PC. Here’s hoping the ISO image will still be downloadable if and when needed.

    Sure, it's wonderful. My hard drive was replaced and now they want $30 to get the disk. I'm real happy.

    Okay so now that you are happy that there is no recovery disk, what do the rest of us do that lose a hard drive totally. I guess go spend more money with Asus and have it mailed. Let me tell you, it is a real hassle to get the disk from them. To the point where I will just load my own op system.
