Error 17 is the result of a incorrect boot record. Follow the following steps to correct your problem:

1 Make a bootable USB flashdrive booting any recent DOS like the one that comes with Win98.
2 start up you Eee Pc and press ESC at the logo screen.
3 Choose your flashdrive to boot from
4 Once you get the command prompt "a:\" type the following: FDISK /MBR
5 A new boot record should be written to your SSD.
6 Reboot and boot from your SSD

Make sure to put FDISK on the flashdrive with the rest of the boot files from win98
