    Win 7 restore from Win 8.1 Pro


    Hi everyone,

    Almost 3 months ago, I have freshly installed Win 8.1 Pro for my Asus Laptop which has been using Win 7 Home Premium x64. However, I want to go back to Win 7 Home premium, and i tried pressing F9 key in start, but it doesnt work. When i am installing Win 8, there were Windows.OLD folder, and i had deleted it. So, i guess i also deleted win 7 recovery. Also, in disk management, I cant see a partition "Recovery", which i have never seen even in Win 7.

    About this anyone can help me?

    Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    Try opening ASUS A1 Recovery from the desktop & make your Recovery disk.

    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the ASUS OEM manufacturer's website.
