Hello.

So I'm trying to install Microsoft Student with Encarta Premium 2009 on my
Asus EEE 900. Well, the eee has 2 disks, one is 4GB and the other is 12gb.
Because I have my XP installed on the 4GB disk and some more small problems
installed on it, it has only 150mb left free space.

When I insert the DVD then it automaticlly says that I don't have enough
free disk space. Where Can I choose on what partipation I want to install it?
Or are there other ways?

Might be me but Encarta seems surplus to requirements when you're connected to the Internet...

Anyway Encarta would install a bunch of files to the system drive where your Windows is. Encarta requires 1.9Gb, plus the space of Dotnet Framework 2 so about 2.5Gb. Bearing in mind XP takes about 2.5Gb on its own with the pagefile, I think its going to be a bit of a tight squeeze...

Your hard discs seem tiny in comparison to those available today - maybe your machine is telling the truth and there isn't enough space?

The Asus EEE PCs don't use traditional hard drives, they use solid state drives. 4Gb is about right for this particular model bearing in mind it would have probably come with a flavour of Linux originally which compared to XP takes up little space.
