Asus Eee pc


To whom it may concern,

Does anyone know if any kind of hardware on this Asus Eee pc is easy to upgrade? ASUS Eee PC 1000 40G Fine Ebony NetBook Intel Atom 10.0" Wide SVGA 1GB Memory 40GB SSD Integrated Graphics

Specifically I would like to know if the ssd can easily be replaced? Or does replacing the hardware require me to use a soldering tool among other tools?

I believe that model has 2 SSD's, an 8gb and a 32gb. If it is like my 901, the 32gb is easily replaced, it is right under the RAM cover panel. The smaller one, I'm not so sure about. They are similar to a mini-pci card, but they aren't really mini-pci devices, two screws and they pop right out.

This place sells SSD upgrades for many netbooks:

What about the other hardware? Maybe the ram and memory?

Can anyone tell me which installation Ubuntu Eee is. Is it the 32-bit installation or the 64-bit installation? I'm assuming it is the 32-bit installation for the 1000 models.

Yes, it is 32-bit, the Atom is a 32-bit processor.

I want to install gos by the following these instructions, but there is one thing I do not understand from the steps.

http://clumpc.com/?p=60

It says to place what I burned on the dvd into the usb drive. Does that mean that the Eee pc has a built-in usb drive and that it will be identified on the desktop or do I place the files that are on the dvd onto an external usb flash drive and boot from that?

It is referring to an external USB attached CD/DVD drive.

I don't have a usb cd/dvd drive. Is there a way to install it from a usb flash drive like Ubuntu Eee does it?

1) Download gOS .iso from thinkgos.com

2) Format a USB stick drive to FAT 32...

3) Download/Install UNetbootin (Universal Netbook Installer) to your
USB stick - http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

4) Put USB stick in your Netbook & power up... (hit F12 at startup).
Select boot from USB device.

all instructions again.

7) That/s it!
