Question about ASUS Eee PC 1005HA Atom N270 TFT Notebook
My netbook came with Win XP and I installed a Linux OS with GRUB for dual boot. I needed to factory restore the Windows portion. I ran the restore partition in GRUB (sda3) and then it rebooted to the regular Windows partition (sda1) but the screen just stays black. Now what? Will it help to turn off GRUB (not sure how to since I lost the Linux password and adding linux single to the grub.cfg didn't help)? What should I do?
I run Windows 7 and also sometimes Fedora 16, Backtrack 5 and Ubuntu. Problem with reinstalling windows is it will write over the GRUB loader and you wont have linux there anymore. You are meant to have Windows first then install linux afterwards so you have the option of both.
Backup any files that you need and reinstall Windows then reinstall Linux. Its too much effort and mucking around to do it the other way even though it can be done
