Hello Everyone,

I have an Eee PC 1000 H running Windows XP that I purchased
last November. It's been a great machine until it crashed in
the middle of editing a document. The blue scream of death
that immediately followed reported a
kernel_damage_in_page_error and mentioned file ftdisk.sys.
Rebooting goes to BIOS but no further. BIOS's advanced
options reports that every possible boot device -- hard
drive, external CDROM, or removable device -- is unavailable
(ie., the device type is enclosed in square brackets). Thus
booting proceeds to a screen telling me "Reboot and select
proper boot device or insert boot media". Unfortunately, I
don't have an external CDROM drive or a flash drive with
WinXP on it.

What next?

You'll have to borrow (or buy) a USB flashdrive & borrow a friends PC to copy your backup CD to the USB. Then BOOTUP by hitting F2. Disable FASTBOOT and change boot order to allow the USB 1st. After you reload XP, you can reset FASTBOOT ON.

The 'kernel_damage_inpage_error' is almost always caused by a bad block (sector) of the hard drive when a requested bit of data from the page file cannot be read into memory.

If you cannot set the hard drive to be the first boot device, and actually have it try to boot Windows, I would suspect that the boot sector is also corrupt.
If you can get it to boot Windows, choose safe mode with command prompt, and run the chkdsk utility.
