You can also put this on a USB drive and boot from it. You can test the Hard drive with one of the programs on the CD.

I dont know as much about this, there are a lot of programs for troubleshooting in that program

Edit(just saw your post): Ok thanks Theog, I was wondering about that.


Must I download Ultimate Boot CD?

NO, but you do need a Windows installer on a USB stick. Take a look at Post 8.
NO.
Once you have reseated the HD, PC may boot in to windows first time.

They are very sensitive to being dropped. If that is the case - take it to the repair shop/use the warranty - unless you are handy with fixing things yourself.

As a side note:

I'd like to get my hands on one those Acers, shouldn't be too hard to figure out how to make proper bootable reinstall media from the recovery partition.

I believe Acer ( at least with some models ) expect you to rely entirely on the recov partition - there is no facility to run off discs.

Hello,

I didn't drop it or had other accidents with it.

I'ts a fine netbook but I find it very slow with VBA for instance it's too slow.

Upgrading to Windows 7 Pro will not make netbook faster.

Update: The Asus 1201HA specifications have been confirmed as. A 12.1-inch LCD (1366 x 768), Intel Z520 1.33GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, 802.11n WiFi, GMA 500 graphics, 3x USB 2.0, VGA, and a multi-card reader.
It will come with Windows 7 Home Premium, and the 6-cell battery should last for 8 hours.




CPU speed 1.33, 2gb ram is why it's slow
