I did a clean install of Windows 10 on my G75VW and I followed the guide on this forum for updating all of the necessary drivers. Everything seems to be working well but there's a Legacy Device in my disk management that's making me crazy. What is it? Where can I get the drivers for it? Should I install them?

Here are its Hardware IDs:
ACPI\VEN_INT&DEV_0800
ACPI\INT0800
*INT0800

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Intel acpi device.
Double check you have downloaded all the chip set drivers as well the the inf files and anything else intel from the website.

Also you can try opening it in device manager and selecting update driver and let it auto search.

Accourding to These site ( HERE (http://www.gigabyte.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?t=54668), HERE (http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/ACPI-VEN-INT-amp-DEV-0800/td-p/5206088) ) that device is the "Intel (R) 82802 firmware driver", which can be obtained from the "Intel MEI Driver" (Intel Managment engine Interface).
Try first to install the original IMEI driver from asus for your model from HERE (https://www.asus.com/us/support/Download/3/388/0/1/gkyI9iViQxXxueTd/36/) -> under others ( win8 x64 ).
if that doesn't work, My guess is that one of these driver will (http://support.asus.com.cn/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=MEI&os=45).
( You might need to perform the following: uninstall previous driver -> reboot -> install new ->reboot -> check device manager ).

I tried both of these solutions to no avail. Apparently Intel no longer supports the MEI driver downloader.

well.. After reading a bit... I don't think it should bother you at all...
see that thread (http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/163308-some-devices-not-installed-should-they.html)... a user complains also he doesn't have the "Intel (r) 82802 Firmware Hub Device".... in page 2-3 the knowledgeable local person tells him it is a legacy device which isn't that important and can be wiped through some registry changes.

I found more info about that "Intel (r) 82802 Firmware Hub Device" HERE (http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/3656144) that lead me to Intel's site (http://www.intel.com/design/software/drivers/platform/security.htm) which contains a bit more info about the reason for that driver.
You can aid the "devcon" MS app to wipe specific device from the device manager ( which represented as a registry value after all )
look HERE for example (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff544746(v=vs.85).aspx#ddk_example_36_remove_a_par ticular_network_device_tools)
You can get DEVCON from here (http://joequery.me/static/downloads/devcon.zip) ( source ) (http://joequery.me/guides/windows-8-toggle-touch-screen/)
