Hey guys.

I'm just curious if my G73SW will be able to run windows 8. I would like to make a iso of my windows 7 just in case i dont want windows 8.

My question
The asus website does not have windows 8 drivers for my laptop. If i buy the online windows 8 for 40 bucks and do the install. Will my computer run properly? Will i be missing drivers that make my computer unable to operate. Or will everything go smooth and the computer will run fine?
Will I even need new drivers?

Thanks
Daniel

As long as the hardware meets the minimum specs, then yes your 73SW will run Windows 8. As for the drivers, just use the Win7 ones :)

Your computer should be able to run Win8 just fine, and yeah just install the Win7 drivers, shouldn't have much of an issue. The only one that *Might* give you problems is the Touchpad driver. I have a workaround for mine on the G74, and I bet it'll work for you as well. Here's my thread with some installation help for Win8

Yes, you can upgrade to Win8 system, but driver ASUS have not provide, you are able to try use Win 7 or search from chipset vander, but ASUS is not promise it is able to use normal.
