This is one of the units that I picked up from Harvey Norman a couple of years ago as the replacement for their HP Netbook deal.

I've been running a variety of OS's on it for some time, but I'd like to reload WinXP to test something out and I don't have a recovery partition.

Anyone on here able to provide a copy of the recovery image so I can reload the unit?

I've asked Asus and they want me to sent it to their local support agent which will probably cost me more than the unit is worth.

Can't you just locate (action pack, technet or other means) OEM iso/media for Win XP SP3 and install from that using the key on the sticker on the bottom?

I think I have that model at home I think, will check if it has a recovery partition.

Thanks for that. Sadly I don't have access to an ISO image for XP Home OEM otherwise I'd just use that with an external USB CD-ROM drive
