I bought a Asus Eee PC 1215B MU17 netbook with the AMD C-50 fusion chip. It's pre-installed with Win7 64bit, and has 4 partitions:
- 100 GB Primary C:
- 16 GB hidden which looks like the Win7 install files
- 117 GB D: Data
- 100 MB I think this may contain the files for their quick on Express Gate OS
I've done numerous dual boots of WinXP and Ubuntu on machines I've built from scratch, but I've never had to deal with this kind of pre-installed setup, Win7 or the issue of not having any install media.
I figure I'll need the latest version of Ubuntu to get support for the graphics on the C-50 chip.
Any advice on how to proceed? Any gotcha's to watch out for? Is installing onto one of the existing NTFS partitions still an option?
