Is it possible to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on this laptop? I have had it with Windows 8 and it's freezing(non responsive) bs.

If it is possible, in what order should I install the drivers?

I guess it's possible. Why shouldn't it?
On my G55 with preinstalled Win8 I've installed Win7 Ulitmate x64. Most drivers I took from the Win8 download section. They seem to me more actual than from Win7 section. Only the USB 3.0 driver I had to get from Win7 download section because there was no for Win8.
Normally I start with chipset drivers. After that audio, graphics and tools etc.

Yes, it is possible. I did it successfully.
You can use most of the drivers from the ASUS-Driver-CD (with 'WIN7' in folder or file name) and you have to download the latest driver for USB 3.0 and the WLAN module -> you can look at *banned website* for these drivers.

I have VX, not VW. Also the cd says "Only supported by Windows 8". I really want to get rid of this Windows 8 asap.

Hi, just browse trough the directories of the CD. Only the ASUS installation wizard doesn't work. Under "Software" is everything you need. Mostly all Win8 drivers on the cd are compatible to Windows7.

Has anyone actually downgraded with their VX? I don't wanna end up screwing up my laptop and then sending it for repair.

That doesn't sound good. Well does anyone know how to fix the freezing/non responsiveness of Windows 8? It takes 7-10 seconds to open something and when I right click on any file it does the same thing.

I would say the non responsiveness is more to do with the hdd , my next thing to do is to put a ssd in it

It has 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD. I don't think it's the SSD because I formatted and it was responding just fine. It started happening when I installed programs and windows updates.

It's really sad man. I wish I knew which one it was. I guess I'll wait until they fix it or someone here can help me out.

When I tried to record my screen with Camtasia Studio everything started responding 100%, no non responsiveness.

Yep, it's preinstalled :(. I'm happy with Windows 8 but these freezes are so annoying.

i usually have a brief freeze on boot after windows updates. however, everything is fine after that. i have a fresh install by the way (and it's an old model).

It's like a delay thing when I open programs or right click files. It doesn't respond for like 10 seconds and the SSD is on full load for those 10 seconds. This happens to a lot of people too.
