    Unfortunately, haven't tried ASUS Backtracker on the G750JS myself, but since ASUS Backtracker is listed on the ASUS G750JS Win8.1 download site under the 'utilities' section, would assume it will work.

    Hopefully others can provide more confirmation if necessary, but if you can get your hands on a 16Gb USB drive, worth trying in my opinion.

    Did your unit COME with windows 8.1? ( I assume it did since it's the latter of the G750 models ) HOWEVER, if there is laziness in place of where I sense it. The BackTracker could bring you to 8.0.

    I doubt it though.. I'm sure it's updated. Even if it doesn't work, a fresh install is better than all the bloatware. ;x

    P.S. you can go find yourself an ISO / Torrent a copy of Windows 8.1 Single Language ( NOT A PIRATE COPY ) as you have a legal copy and the CD key in your BIOS.

    Just don't forget to open your BIOS and write your key down before you do it.

    I got my G750JZ also with Windows 8.1. This first thing I did was to create an USB with Backtracker before I change a lot of things in my original configuration. Then I thought I have to test if the USB Stick works. So I booted from USB Stick, thinking this would be for the first time enough to check. I thought I have some options after booting from the USB Stick, that I could cancel the recovery process - but this was not the case. So with the USB Stick it directly starts to partition and format the hard drives with the factory image on it. So I hoped/prayed that recovery process works properly - and it did work properly. OK it is not the same model, but it was WIndows 8.1 and I can say the recovery worked perfectly and was undesigned tested.
