Hello

i have done that, but be careful, with the recovery partitions, do not touch them, because there, is your original windows that accepts the key that comes with the your notebook, i advise to make a recovery of those drives only, and then if you want to install a clean copy of windows do it, because if you do that (install windows from a boot disc), itīs going to substitute, the original one that came with your notebook, and then the key that comes with the notebook, will not work, only the one that came, with the windows that you have installed.so backup the recovery partitions first.

if you want to install the windows again that comes with your notebook, on restart, just press F9, a blue screen appear, with the option, restore my pc, the 2nd option from the menu, from there, you can choose, recover everything, like it came from factory, only in c: partition, or a full recovery in all drives, but if you do this, the notebook only makes a recovery, like it came from the factory.

the drivers donīt have a specific order, you can install them like VGA first, Intel second, audio 3rd, etc., but i advise to install nvidia, and intel drivers first.
but if you do the "F9" thing, it will install the drivers that are in your "red" disc, that come with your notebook automatic. if you put that red disc, only in a clean windows 8 install, without "F9", you only need that disc to install the drivers, it will install them automatic any way

the language that you need can be download, from windows update, or you can search in Microsoft web page, the language pack that you need, and install it, just google (language pack "name of the language that you need" windows 8)

hope it helps

You do not need a recovery partition anymore for Windows 8 Asus laptops. Download Asus Backtracker and use a 16GB USB key to make a "factory state" backup on that USB. That is your recovery partition. It'll clean up and save space on your SSD.

I myself don't even like the factory image because of it's bloatware, but I'm still using Asus Backtracker to do this, in case of an emergency. Just make sure to run Asus Backtracker on the laptop in question, as it might have details specific to that model.
