Need help with an EEE PC (resolved)
To make a long story short picked up a netbook (eee pc 1005pe) to have something to write on because no one produces actual, old school word processors anymore. Got sick of Windows 7 and decided to install Linux because it'll do everything I need it to do and well, these things don't have a lot of horsepower. But, I did a boneheaded thing and am now trying not to beat my head against a wall.
To start with the machine was duel boot it had an ap called Express Gate and Win 7. Noticed there were two hidden partitions on the HD as well. No cd on these things so I guessed one was an archive to use as a backup/repair and, the second I found out was for the boot-loader.
Now what I stupidly did, I repartitioned the whole thing and now just get a black screen with a little flashing prompt. And when I try to install any flavor of any os, it hangs up when the boot-loader is installing or, gives me an error message saying the boot-loader won't install.
I checked around and found out I could just use an sd card to boot up but, I'd rather just find out how to fix it the right way. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for reading.
