I stupidly tried to do some re partitioning after getting my G55VW before making the recovery discs.
Seems like the default parition in the G55VW uses GPT and so it messed up the parition table and i can't even get back into the recovery partition.

If anyone is nice enough to make the recovery DVD from the asus utility and post up an iso of it, I would really appreciate the help.

thanks

You can order a set of recovery disks from asus support ... my G75VW made 3 DVDs probably G55 is similar.

When you burn the recovery disks yourself from your machine the utility even includes steps that put back in your Win 7 registration number ( so it is already activated when finished recovering ) ... not sure what happens when using a factory supplied set.

the process should just create recovery discs from the recovery parition, never heard of that asking you to put in serial numbers.
any recovery disc made from a G55vw should work on another G55vw i believe.
if anyone would make iso images from their discs and post online i would really appreciate it as it would save me from having to buy from asus, and I am not sure if they would send to me here in Hong Kong as the G55 is no sold here.

Currently burning my G55VW recovery disc using AI Recovery Tool.
It is asking me to prepare 5 blank DVD discs :(

I would be sooo immensely grateful if you would upload iso images of them. but obviously not everyone has the time and bandwidth so I understand if you can't.

Microsoft makes available iso of their OS for people with these situations.

Just follow Microsoft instructions here .. and then use your CD key you have on the bottom of the laptop.

You should be able to get a clean copy of Windows Home Premium in the link below, just make sure you download the drivers for your wireless card or LAN first so that you will be able to get it online to update and download other drivers. Once you have Windows reinstalled use the serial on the bottom of your laptop to activate it and you should be able to download the rest of the drivers and extra software once you get your laptop back online.

here's the link

i just downloaded the windows 7 iso and did a clean install, I was going to do that anyway. I didn't want to buy the recovery disks, I just wanted to be able to do a factory restore when i sell it.

@ngek202, if you really need the recovery discs, just order it from asus.

however, imo it's better to have a fresh install. you can use windows backup to create a system image for future system recovery.

@ngek202, i have no idea what form they are in. don't be cruel to yourself. what's done is done :) just let it go and start play some games.

btw, it's fine to to install and run fresh windows you know?

I'm also thinking of selling this after 2 years :D that's why I need the recovery, but actually fresh install is better though I just started playing a Game and all I can say is it's better than the pre-loaded OS :D.

yes it's better, haha. about the selling part, i think buyers care about the hardware more than software, if they're really interested.

Fresh clean install is better. Some people even said that you need a Sp1 Windows 7 ISO DVD/USB flash but that's not true.

My legal burned Win764 Home Premium installed perfectly on my new fresh SSD and installed Fresh windows 7 in under 20 min and got all the windows updates and mandatory Asus drivers within 1-2 hours and it's up and running and around 20-30 less processes on task manager than with the factory asus full of bloatwares.
