- It starts after I uninstall “Game pack Console” and the MS games like Mahjong etc.., after restart function button doesn’t work anymore, also Smart Logon had the same problem. Then I tried to recover system using recovery DVD’s which I had prepared during first installation. Everything looked fine until progress bar reach 95 % (5th DVD) and I had “Failure to recover ….., Error 1029. After more attempts I decided to swap hard drives between them, and recovery status went to 100 % but after restart computer was frozen after bios loaded (only cursor blinking in the left top corner).
Also I tried to recover system with only one hard drive installed, but without any success.
I format both HDD and tried to installed a fresh copy of windows, but when ask about location, looks like I cannot see any of the drives and I’m asked to load mass storage device driver (I don’t find this on any of the recovery DVD’s and Driver & Utilities DVD).
Again I tried recovery DVD’s and this time I’m asked to remove one of the HDD and restart boot sequence; I did, and error 1029 “Failure to recover from ASUS recovery DVD” appears immediately at start of the recovery process.
Any idea?

This type of behavior is indicative of defective HDD's - could be the source of your Error 1029's. Check your connections and confirm the HDD's are recognized in the BIOS. You could also try installing the HDD's in another computer, even a desktop system, to confirm if you have a bad controller in your G73SW.

I tryed to conect HDD's to desktop unit and looks ok.I copied some files for testing purpose and was no problems.Also in Bios is possible to see both HDD.So if i have bad controller like you said, is anything possible to do something by my self or i have to go to some service?
