    ASUS AI Recovery CD


    I recently purchased a new notebook for mainly everyday use. As ASUS for reasons that I can only imagine to get more money fron their customers. Do not supply ASUS AI Recovery or any recovery media. I can see from Diskpart there are two partitions called:

    Recovery 363 MB (Recovery partition )
    Restore 22.3 GB (Hidden restore partition)

    I crested a Restore USB partition from Windows 8 as a portable restore drive. I have Windows 8 Pro I want to put on the notebook. They say hidden drives, which basically its a partition without a drive letter.

    Am I correct in saying the Windows recovery at 16 GB isn't the same as the ASUS recovery partition but a recovery on Windows 8 should recovery all partitions if they were deleted. Or should I call ASUS Service Centre and buy a recovery CD or could I copy Recovery and Restore to a DVD-ROM. Would the Windows 8 Restore work to recover the partitions its quite a hefty recovery drive at 16GB. Or should I get ASUS AI Recovery from ASUS as a precautionary measure.

    Thank you for that. I shall have a look in a mo. You'd think ASUS would be promoting this. I spoke to ASUS today and they said nothing about this which is rather odd. I wonder why that is.
