My friend just purchased a G751J and an SSD. we both do not like windows 8 so I installed windows 7 on the SSD and made it the boot drive. The only issue I have run into is the wireless card. I cannot figure out what the wireless card is so that I can find the proper windows 7 driver to get it up and running. Does anyone here know where I can find the proper drivers for this?

Hey.
did the same on my device after a particularly frustrating experience on Windows 8.

Try this :
http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?47245-How-to-install-Windows-7-on-the-new-G750JS-G750J-and-G750JZ

Or as I did , use drivers from this model:
https://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_ROG_G750JS/HelpDesk_Download/

Can't remeber what I used that worked , think it was intel.

Hope this helps.

I understand the dislike of Win8's 'start' menu, however you can have a better than Win7 experience by installing a few apps.

* Start8 (or classic shell / similar free offering) restores the start menu and allows you to disable the frustrating hotspots and trackpad behavior, cost $5 USD but I prefer it over the free offerings. Play with the settings to get the behaviours you want.

*Picassa, even if you don't use it the photo viewer is excellent - nice tool for quick photo edits as well. This will prevent you from 'snapping' into the Metro app with photo associations.

*Acrobat Reader (or some other PDF reader) again to prevent snapping back into the related Metro app

*VLC, can't recall is video plays in a Metro app by default or not... listed just in case, plus VLC just plays everything.

*Foobar 2000 for music, or your favorite music player, same reason as above.

*Sykpe for Dekstop, if you use Skype you have to get this version, the default version is a Metro app.


With these apps You would have no clue the Metro interface exist at all, I never see it unless I got looking for it. You will get the benefits of Win8, with none of the downside.

Stardock (the makers of Start8) have other apps that provide a Windows 10 like start menu (before such a thing existed), with metro icon integration, as well as an app that allows you to put Metro apps in a window by default if you have one you like but don't want the jarring fullscreen snapping. I used these briefly but no longer as there is currently nothing that is strictly Metro that I have a need for.

I am happier with this setup than I am with Win7, I am sure most people would be.

My Friend !! Here on this page, see how to install win7 on Asus G75VX. There, too, there was no driver for WiFi. I used the driver from ASUS PCE-AC66 and it worked. surprisingly, a suitable driver for WiFi came from a device that does not have your laptop in any way.

If you fail, you can try other Asus notebooks. I'm sure that happens. Good Luck !! here on page 11, I described his unit with dance and tambourine)))
