    How to get a Recovery media for my G750JX? My SSD and HDD where wiped clean.

    Hi guys,

    I wonder if someone knows how to get my hands on Recovery media for my G750JX?
    I made a clean installation of Windows 8.1 Pro and formatted my SSD and HDD. So I don't
    have a recovery patition(if I ever need one). I did not find anything for G750's model on
    Asus page. Maybe somebody could upload theirs to a cloud..... ?

    Well The "Backtrack Recovery USB file" is pretty large, around 10 GB.
    Maybe some kind soul can help you out there.
    I have a JZ, so I'm of no help to you.

    PS: One of the first things you should have done was create the "BackTracker USB" my friend.
    Well, I guess, live and learn as the saying goes!

    Angelwing56, unfortunately that would be distributing Windows without a license. Only Asus can legally give you a recovery reinstall. If you RMA to Asus and ask them to reload your OS + Recovery partition Asus will do that for you

    You can create a login here, register your laptop, and file a Technical Inquiry asking Asus to RMA your laptop to reinstall the OS and recovery partition.

    https://vip.asus.com

    Then when you get the laptop back, be sure and use Asus Backtracker - should be installed already - and a USB 3.0 16GB Flash drive to create a recovery flash drive that you can use to restore the laptop to out of the box configuration should the OS install go bad - or you want to use another HDD/SSD as your boot drive.

    Thr RMA won't take too long, it is just an OS install - no delays waiting for parts, and then you will have everything back the way it was out of the box

    I agree, maybe that would be the best route for you.

    Thank You very much guy's 4 your reply's. But I don't think that It would be illegal distribution of windows, be cause I did extract my original KEY from the BIOS. I want to have the original version, just for emergency cases. Be cause I have to say that right now My laptop works MUCH better then when he came in new. Be cause I formatted all media, then removed the HDD . then installed the Windows 8 Pro. So all the boot files are only on my SSD now. Then I placed back the HDD. So everything now works exactly how I want it to. No bloatware . So the only reason I want the restore media is be cause I payed for it. And I would like to have some hard copy of it. It actually should be illegal 4 companies no to supply a hard copy of the OS(or recovery media). This way they will also not lie about the amount of free space You have available to use. I mean windows takes already some space + the hidden partition steal is more. Before they always supplied the recovery media, but then they got lazy and greedy.
    Anyway once again thanks for Your reply and help.

    Doubt it's illegal. It's giving him a copy of something he already owns. The only question is does the BackTracker copy of someone else's unit allow you to use your own CD key on it..?

    I am aware that the CD key is tied to the motherboard, too?

    Microsoft takes it seriously... that is why you don't see legit download / mirror sites hosting ISO's of Windows.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/pirac...g/default.aspx
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/pirac.../property.aspx
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/piracy/mpa.aspx

    If you want to get a copy, download it from Microsoft, they make several methods of getting replacement copies to legit licenses.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w.../clean-install

    Asus doesn't do it because it isn't possible for them either. Microsoft is likely behind the move to stop OEM's from distributing separate backup / recovery media with every computer - that is why it is now a partition on the drive contained within the laptop.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recovery_disc#Criticism

    Microsoft has locked down all the potential legal like methods of getting Windows, to make the illegal ones stand out easier to catch those that do.

    Yes, if you already own the software it's not illegal.

    GottiBoi55, it's not illegal for you to use your license key to activate a copy of Windows you have installed.

    But, it is illegal for someone other than Microsoft or an approved OEM with explicit distribution rights from Microsoft to distribute in any form a copy of Windows to be used for installation - with or without a key.

    That is why there are Zero legit download / mirror sites hosting copies of Microsoft OS ISO's... ever wonder why that is the case? It's because it isn't legel for them to do so.

    It is also illegal for you, me, or even Asus to do that as well. We can't make a copy available for transfer over the internet. We also can't make a copy for any other purpose than a personal backup.

    First thing I do is clone my main hard drive. Got a hard drive cloner for just tat. Also I will then cone the clone after I have it nice and setup the way I want it. Saves a lot of time if ne hard drive goes out and I have to swap them out.
