I just upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8 (clean install) and now all of my drivers are gone, I don't want to download and install them one by one from the website, does anyone know where I can download the ISO of the drivers and utility CD like the one that came with the laptop, or something similar?

Thanks.

you upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8? That's a tragic downgrade my friend not an upgrade.

It's a matter of personal preference. I like Windows 8 better.

There should be a downloads page, or use the Windows 7 disc that came with your laptop. Most of the drivers are compatible and/or have replacements. Honestly, the driver ISO won't really help. It just adds bloatware. Go to nVidia's website to get the latest GPU drivers.

P.S. Personally I dislike Windows 8, but to each his own.

That's not true, the Bluetooth Drivers are not compatible and so are the Power4Gear Hybrid and the Wireless Switch

Just go here http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/G55VW/#support_Download_36

then choose windows 8 and get the Windows 8 Drivers

Thanks for the correction! :) +rep! I was thinking on the nVidia drivers more than anything else, which are compatible (if you get them from nVidia's website).

yeah the compatible drivers are:
Intel Chipset Drivers
IRST
MEI
nVIDIA Drivers (whether you get them from nVIDIA or ASUS, they are all inter compatible)
Audio Drivers
Card Reader Drivers
LAN
WLAN
Webcam

Rest apps / drivers must be attained from the respective OS list of drivers
