Installing Windows 7 Ultimate on ASUS EEE PC 1015 PX after New Harddisk Upgrading

I decided to change my netbook harddisk after the machine became so slow and cannot load Win 7. After I place my new HDD into my machine (I upgrade from WD 320GB to Toshiba 500GB), I was prompted to set the bios. After I set the bios successfully using my netbook keyboard, I have difficulty to change boot priority order to install win 7 from USB Flash Disk (Kingston 8 GB). I already formatted the FD to be bootable. The problem is either if I press F2 or Tab key, but the BIOS didn't came up. I do not know if the problem is on my keyboard or anything else, because when firstly I used my keyboard to set the BIOS (CMOS date/time), the keyboard worked perfectly. Anyone HELP ME PLEASE.

    I am still unable to install Win7 even when I press F2 or Tab in USB keyboard
  3. Try F8 and see if it will give you a list of boot option. Then choose the usb one and that will set it to the first boot priority.

    Finally, The problem actually was not on my keyboard but on the BIOS. I went on local repair shop, and I was suggested to upgrade my bios. Then, the BIOS was upgraded and the problem was fixed.

    Anyway thanks a lot for the help.
