hi, just got new GL551JW.

Couple of questions:

1. how do I create a boot disk since the laptop didn't come with one?

2. is there one HDD slot or two HDD slot?

1: in windows search for asus backtracker, you need an USB flashdrive 16GB or larger, I used an 32Gb drive.

2: 1 slot. There is also on half length msata slot, but you have to rip whole computer apart to get to it.

Don't use Backtracker, she doesn't work. Type in Windows Search: "Recovery media" and follow the white rabbit...

"Recovery media" not found on my Windows search on my GL551JW-71, or on the digital user manual that came with it. Is there another way to find out how to do this? My other option is to create full or partial images of C:. I make images regularly with Acronis True Image. I could image the recovery partition, but that seems extreme, and I wouldn't know how to use it. I also use Acronis Disk Director to home in on partitions.
