Hello.

Today I made a big mistake.
I formated my main hard drive including the recovery partition and everything
Fortunately I still had a win8 ISO and was able to reinstall the OS.
DO I only need to install what's here?

Is there a way to get back to the stock config?
Thank you in advance

My G750 came with a DVD, but I havent looked at it, and I am not able to look at it right now, but that is where I would start.

I would file a Technical Inquiry with Asus and tell them you lost the disk config and need to recreate it - can they send you recovery DVD/thumb drive to reinstall.

If you are lucky you have a local shop with the same laptop in stock and they will let you clone that drive to yours. :)

where can you download the recovery partitions files from the Asus Web Site? i didnīt see that, and had to send the notebook to Asus for repair.

that will be a great help, if you link me to that i have a G750JX

thank you

Unfortunately, the recovery partition is not available for download, but for Win8 notebooks you can use the ASUS Backtracker software from this link (http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=ASUS Backtracker&p=3&s=480)to make a back up of the recovery partition to a USB drive when you first get the notebook.

Yes, the latest ASUS approved drivers for you notebook can be found from the ASUS download site (http://support.asus.com/Download/Options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1), but if you are still using the original ASUS Windows image, check under the 'eSupport' folder for the 'eDriver' folder which can be used to burn to a driver disk or run straight from your hard drive by opening the 'AsInsWiz' (ASUS Install Wizard?) application.
These drivers may not be as current as the website though and you can check the 'filelist.txt' file for the included drivers and versions.

that option did not work for me cl-albert. I called tech support and they told me that i can not buy or get a recovery dick i have to ship my laptop to them ( i told them to go **** them self's i need this for school). By windows TOS they have to provide a disk for purchase or free( could of changed with 8 but that's what i remember).

Any enlightenment will be greatly appreciated

My G750JW/JX came with a DVD containing the same contents as C:\esupport, which is all the drivers and applications installed onto Windows 8 for the G750. You should have had one of these in your box, but if not you should be able to order it from Asus. Explain to them it is the Driver DVD - not a recovery DVD.

Here are some jpgs of the DVD / esupport and Asus Installer contained in both.

There is also a Utility called Asus Live Update, which shows up in the downloads sections of the G750 laptops under Utilities. I don't know if that is enough to get everything, or if it will work on a G750 with a vanilla Windows 8 install, but it might be worth a try.
