We are looking at supporting Asus netbooks for the faculty and staff at our college. How do you recover/reload the Windows XP Basic OS if it becomes unusable? Is there a recovery partition? What if the hard drive goes? Is there a restore CD?

Bob,
The machines do have a recovery partition as well as a restore DVD.  If you click on the download heading on the top of this page, select the following in the pull downs in the upper right on the new page, you can view the information you need. 

Use these entries.
Select Product                             Eee Family
Select Series                               Eee PC
Select Model                                1000he
and then click search.  It will come up asking for the OS.  Select Win XP and OK.  It will show you a list of 41 files.  If you select the Manual and find the one for English, it will show you exactly the procedure for recovering/reinstalling the OS as well as changing out hard drives, adding memory and other useful pieces of information.

Best Regards,
DrZ

DrZ...I got into the manual following your instructions, but could not find instructions for "...changing out hard drives...".  I have a WD 320 gb 2.5" SATA drive I want  to install, along w/XP PRO (legitimate copy purchased in tech school), but I'm a little hesitant to just jump right in w/o instructions.  Could you be more specific about where to find those instructions in the manual? 

Your input on this forum on a wide range of subjects has been invaluable, and is greatly appreciated.

Pete,
I went to youtube and found a video on replacing your hard drive and ram on a 1000h.  It will be close to your 1000he.  Watch the video by clicking here and I am sure everything will go smoothly.
Please remember to enter your bios by tapping F2 so it will recognize your changes.  Then tap F10 to save them.
Best Regards,
DrZ
