    I don't know about a recovery flash drive, but you can download the windows 7 disc image in Chastity's sticky for the G-series laptops and apply that to a flash drive. Then you can copy all of the relevant apps from Asus that you use. It's actually a quicker way to do a clean install than using the 4 DVDs.

    If you want to use the Recovery partition you just press F9 during boot; No DVD is required for this operation. The recovery DVD is an alternative for when you can't or don't want to use the partition.

    And do not delete the Recovery partition. The DVD's you make are useless without it.

    Personally, I removed the AI Recovery app, as I find it useless, and I use Acronis to make images to external HDD's.
