    Asus f55c-sx017h windows 8


    Hi all,

    I am new to this forum however not new to forums in general. I have taken a look around here and I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for.

    So anyway ill cut to the chase... I have bought a new windows 8 laptop for testing purposes (two reasons for purchase: I'm a TAFE college teacher in IT and need to learn it lol and I attempted to install win 8 on my gaming pc and I couldn't get the latest 12.10 or 12.11 CCC drivers to play.) so anyway back to the laptop. I am looking to swap out the HDD for a spare SSD I have. I just wanna know how am I suppose to reinstall windows 8. Now I know that with my tech knowledge I have I could throw a license crawler through the laptop and get the key and acquire a OEM disc and reinstall that way no issue. However I want to know the conventional method of normal consumer what would they do????

    Many thanx in advance

    Hope someone has the answer

    Welcome to EightForums.

    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD.

    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8




    Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    That was one of the first things I looked for and I couldn't find any asus recovery options at all. So I then proceeded to use the windows 8 recovery option and copied the recovery partition to USB. I then dropped in the new SSD and tried to boot from the USB and it worked but I can reinstall anything from there???

    Sorry to say, but ASUS are not doing Recovery disc's

    The answer was what I feared- currently there are no Asus-provided recovery tools to create a disk image for the G75VW with Windows 8. This was very surprising to me but right now this is the official word from Asus.

    Will you need to use the Windows system image.

    As mentioned just above I boot to the USB that I create and it's all good but then I get to the point of choosing my recovery image and it can't find anything and wants me to install drivers???
