    Welcome to the forum

    Sorry to say it, but I don't think that what you are asking can be done.

    But I'm no expert & hopefully someone else will come along with a more helpful reply & prove me wrong.

    Good luck with your repair

    The stock Asus ROMs do not have any formatting/partitioning tools included. Even with any Android tablet or ROM, I am pretty sure you are NOT going to be able to format the drive and install an OS to use on another device. What you could do is plug the hard drive into an external enclosure via USB and copy data off the drive (documents, music, files, etc.).

    In order to install a new OS on the drive, you will need it to be installed on the computer that is going to run the OS, then insert a CD/DVD to install it, or use a bootable USB drive with the installation files.

    I had an old WD My Book that stopped working. I took it apart and took the 3.5 inch hard drive out of it and bought a USB enclosure at Fry's for about $20. It works great plugged into my laptop USB or my Asus TF700 keyboard USB.

    Which is exactly what I thought, but my experience in this area is so dated now, that I couldn't be 100% certain.

    leonidas, If your laptop came with a boot disc you could try the repair windows option. I assume you cannot access your pc at all so you will need to insert your disc into the drive, Keep tapping delete until a screen is displayed with various options listed at the top or side. You will need to change the boot priority from the hard drive to your cd drive. When you have done that tap the f10 button to save, Your laptop will then boot the cd where you can access the repair option...

    You only need to change boot priority - If you change any other settings you could damage your laptop...

    If you are rooted, you could probably set up a live Linux usb using a microSD card using dd or if you have a dock you could probably do it on a flash drive. Not sure if you can get the laptop to boot off of a microSD in a usb card reader, but it should be possible.

    You would only be able to install Linux on the computer using a Linux live flash drive, but it would work to get you running at least.

    Do you have the original install disc for the OS on your notebook computer?

    Are you running Windows 7 or 8?

    You can install the OS using a flash thumbdrive. It must be at least a 4GB drive. All you need to do is get an ISO image of the OS installation. For Windows 7 it's very easy, for Windows 8 it's a little more difficult.

    No, you cannot use the TF700 to install an OS onto a notebook.

    Give some more info and that will help. I can provide you links for you to download a Windows 7 ISO image to do the install with. These links are legal and are the original MS ISO images. They're provided by Digital River which handles them for MS.

    I won't be able to respond until late this evening as I'm working all day and most the evening.

    Be patient, this can be done.

    ~Nibs

    P.S.
    I am a moderator on a Windows 7 forum and a Windows 8 forum, in addition I've helped dozens of users do exactly what you're trying to do.
