Greetings fellow techies,

So my issue is that Ive had my machine for a bit now, and never bother to try and obtain a copy of the RCD while it was in warranty. Well now my OS is acting all erratic and needs a clean install. My question is, using a USB flash, what would be the easiest way to reinstall the OS using my OEM key without having to pay for RCDs.

I have a usb flash stick along with an external passport drive.

I know that not just any download of the OS will suffice. Any and all advice provided is appreciated in advance!

BTW, Ive got a factory G75VW. This will be my first reinstall of the OS.

there are several ways to reinstall window 7, Use your AI Recovery disk you made when you first got your Notebook. Asus Nagged you to do this for weeks until you disable the NAG.
Download a ISO for win 7 home Premium here (http://www.w7forums.com/threads/official-windows-7-sp1-iso-image-downloads.12325/). Your product key is on a sticker on the bottom of your notebook.
Download all the latest drivers from Asus Support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en)

Rewben has put together most of the upgrading and installing in this thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&country=&status=)

A Clean Install of Windows 7 is very easy to do. Be sure to use Rufus to create your install USB Stick as your system is UEFI and you'll need to boot into the UEFI system with your ISO. Its all covered in the Sticky thread I linked you too.

If all the help you need is about Windows 7 installation see this thread in the window Seven forum (http://www.w7forums.com/forums/installation-setup-and-updates.6/)

You may already know, but if you are still using the original ASUS factory Windows installation, just wanted to remind you that you should have a recovery partition, so if you don't mind erasing everything and going back to the original ASUS Win7 factory install, tap the 'F9' key at power-up to begin the Windows recovery process.

You can also check Windows Disk Management to see if you still have the recovery partition, but if not, check Clintlgm's suggestions in the post above.
