Sauro, does the eepc have the capability of booting  off a External USB 
I purchase a Everx Cloudbook and the only way you can reinstall OS is to 
remove hard drive from CloudBook and put on another laptop and install 
OS and then put back into CloudBook.
The problem there is when you do that, your warranty has gone out the door.
