July 2015


This file helps you restore Asus Netbook to factory settings. Here's a quick introduction to an Asus Netbook and method of how to recover the settings.
An Asus Netbook has a restore utility which is easy to use. It is available through a recovery partition, part of which will be used for restoring from a USB key for those which do not have a recovery partition. This document also includes information on how to get started with the process and restore from a recovery partition.

The Asus Netbook possesses a very simple and quick to use restore utility. Restoration is available through a recovery partition, or from the recovery DVD that includes a utility for drivers (external DVD drive will be required). One part will be devoted to restoring from a USB key, for those who no longer have the recovery partition or external DVD drive, but it will still provide the DVD for purchase.

Getting started


Disable Boot Booster
  • The Boost Booster option will remove the bios screen of the Netbook at startup and this option is enabled by default on the purchase.
  • Turn on your Netbook normally, and immediately press the F2 key until you reach the Setup Utility, which allows access to the bios options, including Boost Booster.
  • Using the arrow keys, move to the Boot tab, then click the Boot Booster option. Press the Enter key, then turn the option to Disabled to disable it.
  • Go to the last tab, Exit and save changes.

Restore from the Recovery Partition

  • Start your Netbook and press the F9 key on your keyboard until you see a loading screen.
  • The restoration program prepares the files needed for the operation.
  • A message appears asking if you want to perform the operation. You will lose all files on your machine.
  • Confirm by clicking ?.
  • The restore process is done automatically, without any human intervention.
  • At the end of restoration, the machine will reboot on its own and make configurations.
  • A restart is performed again, and you find yourself on the setup process of Windows, same as the first boot after buying the Netbook.
