? Have you tried DBAN ("nukes" the HDD - totally clean writes zeros) then "start from scratch"? Is this an "upgrade CD or a "full" (retail, or OEM)?

"NTLDR" is missing - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314057

You may have more than one partition AND the Boot Loader in the MBR is probably still Linux (not sure if that would have anything to do with it?).

Try getting a DBAN cd image, burn it, boot from it, and "nuke" the whole HDD (an SSD or a HDD???).

ASUS EEE PC Specs - http://event.asus.com/eeepc/microsites/901_1000/en/specifications.html

So, which one is it? (I see no CD/DVD, but must have one - have a floppy? probably not)

We need more info. BTW, I believe several other members have an EEE and may be able to help (dencorso?) more.
