Hello everyone!

I just bought a new asus desktop pc with windows 8 preinstalled.

I want to swap out the hdd for an ssd instead.

How would I install the OS on the new ssd with a usb drive?

Also once I get the OS on the new ssd would all the drivers automatically install?

I don't even know that much about bios etc.......I'm a bit of a noob.

The asus didn't include restore/install disks either.

Any help would be great.:thumb:

Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?



You can order OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.

This for Windows 7:

You will need to open the ASUS app & see if there is a option to make USB Recovery.

Thanks for trying to help me but I'm giving up and returning it for a mac mini.

Windows is just way too advanced for me.

I already registered the asus under my name for the warranty.

I signed into my asus account but I cant find a place to unregister the computer.

Can someone tell me how to unregister it?

I just spoke with a polite & well-informed person at Asus tech support regarding how to create a disk image for my new g75 (which I purchased yesterday) that has Windows 8 on it.

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.
