Use the Recovery DVD that was in the box with the new machine.

A how-to for creating a recovery USB flash drive without and external optical drive can be found here:

In my case it isn't.There's a little partition(about 4gig) with the recovery software on it.My d partition is 60Gig.Anyway my problem is solved,not using the method with the usb key,but i had to buy an external dvd station and that did it.
One more question,if i clean up the whole disk(all partitions gone)will the recovery dvd restore my eee pc to original state,or is the recovery partition realy needed?This is just in case of trying other os'es like win7...

Anytime you use your Support DVD, it will return your machine, partitions and all, to the same state it was in on Day 1.  So... do you need it?  Not really but you can save yourself about 20 minutes of recovery each time you do it if you leave the recovery partition alone.

Best Regards,

Ok that's good news,i heard that win7 runs pretty good on the eee...so one day i'm going to try it without having the fear  that i can't return to factory settings.
