I have an Asus Eee PC 901. I want to install Win7 on it and at the same time, re-partition it into one large drive (it's currently complaining about HDD space issues).
I've downloaded a Win7 ISO and used the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to create a bootable USB stick from it (16GB Kingston Datatraveller II).
My Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop will boot from the USB drive with no problems, however the Eee PC will not. I have changed the boot order to start with the external drive, but it still boots straight into WinXP from the internal SSD. I have tried all USB ports on the Eee PC (there are reports that only the port on the left hand side will work), all to no avail.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? Could there be something wrong with the USB stick that means the Eee PC cannot boot from it even though my Dell laptop can?
