Hi,

I'm actually tryting to decide whether or not to buy an Eee PC 1005 HA that has Windows XP, 280 atom processor, wireless b/g/n, buetooth and full VGA.  I've been researcing netbooks for a while, but can't seem to get the right package in a quality computer.  I've been looking at Toshiba's, but not comfortable with the RGB(sp) port as opposed to VGA, or the highly recommended HDMI.

Anyway, I have always found in my research that Asus Eee was the best made netbook.  So I decided to look at the Eee PC inspite of the fact that it has Windows XP.

Question:  Is Windows 7 worth the effort to upgrade to from Windows XP?  I'm buying this netbook from QVC who is not offering Windows 7 as the OS.  Most netbooks offer the Windows 7 Starter, which I learned, recently, is not the full version.  Should I buy this Eee PC with XP, or buy one somewhere else with Windows 7 already added?  Thanks for all the info.

When i try to run the win 7 AsusSetup.exe to install the ASUS Updater it says that i must install ACPI drivers and it aborts. i also tried setting the compatability to AsusSetup to xp service pack 2. it still says i must install ACPI drivers. what am i doing wrong?

Hey,
  sorry to revive such an old topic, however I had a simple question:
 I am at the step where win 7/asus acpi service gives me the message "missing ACPI drivers, please install asus ACPI drivers."

I was wondering, when you guys say 'uninstall the ACPI drivers', what drivers are you guys specifically talking about? I'm asking this because in device manager, I have multiple items that show 'ACPI'. Do I uninstall all such items or certain ones? listed, these are:
o microsoft ACPI-compliant control method batter
o ACPI x86-based PC
o ACPI fixed feature button
o ACPI Lid
o ACPI sleep button
o ACPI Thermal Zone
o microsoft ACPI-compliant embedded controller
o microsoft ACPI-compliant system
o microsoft windows management interface for ACPI

and thats all. i'm assuming its the fixed feature button - thermal zone, however I believe I tried uninstalling these before, and there was no change, however I may be wrong. Any confimation or support is welcome, i'm kind of a beginner at this. Thank you in advance,
   -ken

Hi Kennypu,

I'm in the same scenario as you describe above. Which driver did you un-install and did it work for you?

Hola, no consigo poner un tema en esta página, como puedo hacerlo?, ya que tengo un problema con el pc: Al iniciar el pc me dice que tengo que actualizar la BIOS, la actualizo, reinicio y me sigue saliendo el mismo mensaje. La última actualización de la Bios que me dice que me descargue, es la que tengo en el ordenador.
