    Order Recovery Disks from the Asus site, article 5

    Did you not create your own recovery disks when you got the computer? There was originally a recovery partition on it but when you installed Linux on it, it is gone.

    If you buy it from ASUS now, you will still get Windows 7.

    I bought Win 8 x32 and x 64 recovery disks on eBay, nothing expensive.

    Damn well didnt work!!!

    Reason: not created on machine it was going to be used for. I bought these from a reputable dealer too, not a back street hacker.

    If it didn't ship with Windows 8 from the factory you won't find any. None that I personally would use anyway. If it did ship with Windows 8 you'll have to call or e-mail ASUS tech support to see if there are in fact Windows 8 recovery disks for your model. If not your looking at doing a clean install and trying to find a Windows 8 install media.
