I sent it back. It returned today. It has a new serial number. I assume they replaced it. It was the main board. Once I know that it works, I will - eventually - try to install eCS.  8)

Well.. Sigurd just publish his Howto on Hobbes 

              - the German Version - with a lot of screen shoots and instructions

                the english version is in the pipe line


Now there are 3 HwoTo about the EeePC and eCS on Hobbes

and the Wiki

Currently Ed is working with the GenMac Team to the NIC and WLAN Support

There are solutions for the video and audio support.


happy installing

Thank you for the information and links. I will definitely check it out.  8)

http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=16951  There are some working on using SD cards to run operating systems instead of installing them onto the SSD. This would mean being able to switch os's just by switching sd cards.  ;D It would be cool if one could install eCS onto a sd card. http://eeespot.blogspot.com/

I have eCS 1.2r. Would it work with 1.2r that same way with 2.0r4?  ???

It would be neat to see if eCS 1.2r will install onto the SSD.  8)

So far, my EEE PC is not having any more problems. It is working quite well.
