I am new to Asus and I bought 2 days ago an Asus G75VX-T4033H and SSD: OCZ 256GB Vector
I made a brief configuration G75VX-T4033H:
GPU: nVidia GeForce GTX 670MX
Memory: 8GB DDR3 1600
Storage-Disk in slot 0: 750.0 GB
(+ The OCZ SSD 256GB Vector I'll add)
OS: Windows 8 x86_64
My UEFI (or BIOS?) Is up to date (203) and everything is default.
I did not install the SSD in the laptop, I do not know if I should put it in slot 0 (since it is the system disk) and put the HDD in slot 1 (for documents)
I would like to install my SSD, remove windows 8 and put Windows 7 x64 (and debian dual boot., But that's another story) and finally have all updated drivers
However, I fear not being able to install the nvidia driver on windows 7. I understand that my laptop has the "Hybrid Power" and with that thing, you can not update the official nvidia. Must go through the drivers asus?
If this is true, it bothers me because I really want to be independent windows 7 and be able to update my drivers quietly (especially the drivers asus G75VX's not a day compared to those of nvidia
So for my transition to all this, I have prepared a list of questions and it would be very nice of you to answer
These are all questions for my laptop, nvidia drivers, the SSD and installing Windows 7x64
- Currently my storage looks like this:
Drive-in slot 0: HDD 750 (For OS and documents)
I like it like that
Drive-in slot 0: SSD 256 (For OS)
Drive-in slot 1: HDD 750 (for documents)
You advise me to put the SSD in slot 0 or 1? (For me it is logic+ set it to 0, so replacing the HDD in slot 1)
and everything in AHCI
- For Windows 7. I have rather let my partitions to GPT or MBR?
- I have to disable UEFI to reset the bios? (It will not cause delays?)
Puije-use Windows 7 with UEFI? for the installation of windows 7 it hangs on "Starting Install .."
However, I solved this problem by selectionantn: CSM Launch "to Enabled.
If I understood correctly, this is the CSM Launch bios, and desactived is UEFI.
I think to put the bios to install Win7 UEFI and back to enjoy its speed?
Once win7 I could enjoy the updated official nvidia? optimus with intel and intel HD4000 when I am not using the GPU?
I hate to be secure with asus update ....
