Windows 7 Upgrade Guide for Eee PC 1000H
I’ve got two older Eee PCs right now, my Eee PC 1000HE and my wife’s Eee PC 1000H. Both are running Windows XP while another desktop is running on Vista Home Premium. The thing is I’ve been thinking about upgrading all of them to Windows 7 but Windows 7 Family Pack is not yet available in the Philippines so I may have to wait some more time before I get to use Windows 7 in any of these machines.
But for you who still has the Eee PC 1000H who wants to upgrade your system to Windows 7, are in luck as Asus has release a guide on how to do so.
Before upgrading your Eee PC 1000H’s OS to Windows 7, you need to upgrade its BIOS first and also upgrade a set of drivers. You might also want to partition your hard drive to make it a dual booting machine. Why? Because upgrading from XP to Windows 7 is actually a fresh install. So it’s like starting anew with your netbook – meaning your system data settings will not be imported.
Sounds scary? It is definitely not for the weak of heart. But hey, it’s Windows 7 so don’t expect it to be an easy way in.
Now, I’ve got a better suggestion. Google Chrome OS is rumored to come out in a week’s time, you might want to wait for it and install it instead on your Eee PC 1000H.
