    Probably a good idea to make an image when you have updated your current system. You could try windows own imaging program
    Windows system image is different from a custom refresh image and can be used to restore, but cannot be used to reset or refresh.

    Even better to use a free 3rd party imaging program. The best freebie is Best Free Backup Software for Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP and Server 2003, 2008, 2012

    Just loading up my basics, and then off AOEMI. Thanks. Will this program provide a way to restore the image, prior to loading windows? Like a bootable USB or a Recovery DVD? ((In case I can't get into windows to run the program))

    Check your Windows 8 COA for version.

    I would call ASUS support, you may need to send back to ASUS for Windows 8 product key to be reset in the UEFI/BIOS firmware by MS.

    I just paid Microsoft and asus can shove it. Not trying to be rude to you, just dislike the customer service. And now I'll have a legit copy and key for windows 8 pro. And for some reason asus doesn't sell my recovery media in the US.
