Recovery Partition On Eee

Recommended Posts

I have a Eee PC 901 and a Eee Box B202.

I managed to remove recovery partition on my 901, and i would like to have it back with a custom disk image.

On my B202 i would like to change the disk image. IS it possible to install non Asus supplied os without messing up recovery partition.

What i want to do on both computers is to put a custom OS with F9 working from the BIOS (in other words, i would like to boot in my custom OS from BIOS by hitting F9).

Anyone any ides...

Here is my Question in short: What is the Rocket science for F9 trigging recovery boot. I could put something like GRUB and boot a recovery system from there, but i want to be able to use inbuilt button for trigging special boot...

I thought the disk (CD/DVD) that came with the eeePC's was all that's needed to reinstall the OS, and that there isn't a recovary partition on the eeePC's.

Both Eee Pc and Eee Box came with recovery partitions and recovery DVDs.

But I don't have a external drive, and these disks doesn't restore the recovery partition. The reason i want a recovery partition just sitting is, so the i can restore last taken snapshot if i ever screw up anything. The this is when i was at my parents this holiday i managed to corrupt some critical system files, and i wasn't able to use 901 till i came back. If i have a recovery system sitting, i could use it to get back to work again...
