    I can't install windows 7 from software recovery with my product key because it was preinstalled. is there a way to use recovery or copy bcd file?

    If 7 was preinstalled, then the asus.swm files will be the asus 7 osimage. Shouldn't need to be activated.

    When is it asking for a product key?

    thank you all the problem was fixed.
    what i did was to first create a recovery image from windows 8 control panel, so that BCD file would be created on the usb.
    then i copied all asus recovery partiton files except for boot folder. after that i copied the content of boot folder from recovery partiton to the boot folder in the usb, so that bcd file would be in the usb.
    i then booted the usb i created and it worked .

    thank you all.
