i'm thinking your laptop is doomed to turtle-like speeds since you're running on an atom CPU.. so even if u have ubuntu, you probably won't be able to stream the higher res videos since it's a hardware limitation.

i am not aiming for a higher res video what i need is to change its OS because its too slow even if its restaring there is no problem with browsing because its fast but only the reloading is the problem like when you shut it down or restart it i only want it to have a good booting system which is not too slow i dont need it anyway but i will give it to my brother so he can have a netbook for his school

well, in that case, you don't need to install linux.. just re-install an OEM version of windows. it's really easy since your key is already in the bios, you just put the disk or flash drive in and install. if you want it to boot really fast, consider getting a cheap SSD drive.. it'll cut down your load time in windows 7 significantly.

well maybe i will try to explore this thing first
and also the first thing that popped up to my mind is to restore it back ti its original setting but the damn recovery area is missing
and now im searching its OEM on every folder

as previously mentioned, any OEM copy of windows 7 works. you can download it via a bit torrent website (without key), and i believe it would still be legal, since you are using your laptop's key. hell, you don't even need to burn it onto a DVD.. just install it into your flash drive.

just make sure that you download the same version of windows 7 and an OEM copy, not retail.

you have to boot to your bios.. when you turn on your computer, press f2 or del. you have to do it really fast though, otherwise it will just tell you no operating system or load your o/s.

once you download the OEM iso, you can download windows 7 USB here http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool

Have you gone into the settings when it's booting up using one of the F keys and changed it to boot from USB? Have you tried googling for a solution to this? I don't know why it would say missing operating system. Does it still boot up normally on its existing os?

maybe it didn't install correctly the first time. all you need to do is reset it to boot off your hard drive to load your old o/s, unless you deleted it.

I think you haven't enabled the usb boot support, check this website:  http://www.informationweek.com/software/operating-systems/how-to-run-linux-from-a-usb-flash-drive-/d/d-id/1067912?page_number=2

Enable USB Boot Support

Most computers shipped within the last couple of years will support booting from a USB device. That said, this isn't always enabled by default, and it isn't always enabled for all USB ports on the system.

One of the first places to look for information about USB boot support, apart from the manufacturer's own specifications, is the system BIOS. In my own Dell XPS, for instance, the default USB handling option is to enable booting from attached USB devices -- but I need to press F12 at boot time to select something other than the default boot device, normally the hard drive.

Another important thing is that some of the USB ports in the XPS can be manually disabled from being polled for boot devices. This is done so that you can attach an external USB drive (whether flash or an actual hard drive), and leave it attached between reboots without worrying about it hijacking the computer's boot sequence.

The folks at the PenDriveLinux Web site -- a fantastic resource for all things related to running Linux on USB -- have a quick way to test USB boot support on a given USB drive and computer. They use the SysLinux utility to make the drive bootable and add a copy of Memtest86+ a quick way to see if boot support works. Note that if you're doing this on Vista, open an admin command prompt to run the makeboot.bat file or it won't work.

SysLinux is used widely to make flash drives bootable for Linux distributions, so it's a tool that we'll be coming back to. Note that if you get a "boot error" or other error message when you try to boot a drive processed with SysLinux, you may need to run the DISKPART CLEAN command on the disk (again, from an admin command line) to remove any previous master boot record information, reformat the drive, and then try again.
