Windows 7 runs surprisingly well on most Intel Atom powered netbooks that were launcehd in the era of Windows XP netbooks. But the next generation Windows operating system which is due out in October sometimes needs a little help from hardware makers to detect all the components in a netbook. And this week Asus launched a BIOS update for the Eee PC 1101HA mini-laptop which adds support for “auto detect 3G, Wlan, BT device in Windows 7”

This should make it easier for existing Eee PC 1101HA users to upgrade to Windows 7. But it’s also likely an indicator that Asus plans to launch a version of the laptop with Windows 7 preloaded in the not too distant future.

  1. Granted I dont have the 3G version, but neither the BT device nor the wlan card needed anything special to get working in Windows 7, so I dont get what you need this for. Also, the BIOS update doesnt fix the fact that the ACPI software doesn’t work with BIOS above 0208, which is frankly the biggest problem with using Windows 7 on the 1101HA.
