    Few questions from a fairly new owner

    Hello everyone, i was just wondering about MaxxAudio i dont seem to have it installed on my Asus G750jz, i looked around and read something about having the latest Realtek Audio and i do have it yet i still cannot find the MaxxAudio program.

    Also im a little bit bothered about have i think 4 partitions C95.3GB) Two 465GB (D: and E and an F: with 121GB.
    Is there a way to combine these? or atleast replace the smaller one? I have a spare 1TB on me but i do not know how to deal with having the OS on the small partition.

    I apologize in advance for i lack knowledge in most of these things and thank you also in advance.

    I would leave the drives the way they are. Terabyte hard drive is more efficient that way. but you can go into disk management and combined them.

    Fehaya, it might be that the Realtek software reacts differently on the new JM/JS/JZ than the JW/JX/JH, and MaxxAudio isn't supported - I hadn't heard that it wasn't showing up in the new G750's till just now.

    It should show up in the Realtek HD Manager under the Speaker config => Audio Wizard tab, and as a separate program icon.

    It's odd because up until the latest update to Realtek driver from the Notebook Audio download area, I downloaded and used the one from the G750JM area, and it worked fine and has the MaxxAudio Audio Wizard - it even worked for headphones.

    Here is the latest Asus ROG version of the Realtek HD driver V6.0.1.7213
    http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...&m=Audio&os=30

    You need to be careful with that download area, sometimes the first downloads in the list aren't the latest, read down the list and make sure that the first one has the highest version number. At this time, the .7213 is the newest and the first one in the list

    The installer will uninstall the old driver package, and reboot, then install the new driver package. I would then reboot again before trying it out, or looking for the AudioWizard.

    Please come back and let us know if it installs and shows the AudioWizard in the Realtek HD Audio Manager.

    Fehaya, it is a mystery as to why Asus does this to all drive / ssd media. They split the media into multiple partitions, making the C partition too small to be useful. Asus does the same with the 1TB drive.

    The old school thought on this is that if a partition directory structure gets damaged, you still have the data intact on the other partition(s) that have the directory structure still intact. It is a good thing, but you need to balance that against the size of the drive and the usefulness of the resulting fragments of the whole drive.

    The small RAID0 on the JH/JZ is a bad place to implement this policy

    What I did was to look at the partitions, and see that the F: DATA partition was next to the C partition, so I could back up my F: partition data and then delete the F: partition and absorb the space into the C: partition. I did that first.

    That change gave me a 217GB C: partition, much more useful.

    The other 20GB of partitions include the recovery partition. You don't want to delete that without making a back up of it first. The best tool for backing up the recovery partition is Asus Backtracker - it creates a recovery flash drive that you can boot from and restore the out of the box partitioning and software configuration to both drives in the G750.

    A 16GB fast USB 3.0 drive is recommended to get everything backed up and be fast enough to create and use for recovery - I tried a USB 2.0 drive and it took f.o.r.e.v.e.r. to create it and do a recovery from it

    Once you verify you can boot on the flash drive and you get the restore options ok, you can delete the recovery partition, you now have a 237GB C partition, and it looks like this:

    Notice I have combined the partitions on the 1TB drive, and also you can see the Samsung 512GB 840 Pro boot drive I made with the Asus Backtracker flash drive.

    Asus Backtracker 3.0.4 from the G750JM download area.
