hi balboanelson,

could you remove the other topic you started? - i edited the text of the other one into this question - it's the same problem and there are possible ways to fix it.

first of all - here is the knowledge base article from microsoft about the error message - the problem is - without an optical drive or a working xp setup on an usb stick - you're stuck here.

if the eee pc is still in it's original configuration - it could recover it's operationg system with one keystroke - but normally that means that all your data will be gone after that.

after you powered on the eee, hit F9 (around a second after the bios splash screen) and the eee then loads a menu:

Normal Boot

Perform Disk Scan

Restore Factory Settings

in your case you should use the last entry

You would have to have a recovery disc to fix this issue. I don't know of any way to do it without.
