I've just installed Windows 7 on a EeePC 1001HA for a family member.

I noticed that there was a lot of Asus junk programs on the original Windows XP install. Are any of them really import than I should reinstall onto Windows 7?

For example, does the EeePC require special battery management software or should the built-in windows one be fine?

Thanks,
FNi.

i don't have Eee PC, but i think i can give you my opinion,

i had several DELL computers, they added many programs, online this one line that. sometimes they hangup. they also slow down my start up time,  i uninstall them and get partially and un-clean uninstall.. many nagging things during start up..

eventually I use standard windows installation and now i have  peace of mind for very long time.

my opinion is, if your style of using plain windows OS is adequate for you, by all means just stay with it so that you do not have additional headache to deal with things that you do not need.

FNNi, in the download section for your Eee Pc you'll find a guide called Self-upgrade to Windows® 7 for your Eee PC with Windows® XP.

All files and install sequences mentioned in it are essential for a proper Win7 install.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I've been going through the Self-Upgrade to Windows 7 guide but it has caused even further confusion.

My Eee PC model is 1001HA (that's what it says on the bottom of the netbook) however the bios update for that model doesn't work. When I try to load it up I get a 'ROMID' error.

EZ-flasher recognises my netbook as a 1005HA model, which has completely different bios upgrades. Yet when I go into the bios, it clearly says the model is 1001HA.

So what do I do here? Should I download the BIOS from the 1005HA section but all software from the 1001HA section?

If your Eee PC is a 1001HA and you have downloaded the latest BIOS for 1001HA you have to RENAME it to 1001HA.rom in order for EZ flasher to recognise it.
