    Question Looking For A G751 Fresh Install Guide

    Hey everyone! I always wipe any new laptop I get since I only want a stripped out version of windows 7 running and nothing else has anyone posted a fresh install guide for the G751? I've done some searching but came up empty handed. Thanks!

    Yep if you want win 7 try Classic Shell you can set up just as you were in 7 only on steroids you won't miss win 7 at all
    I agree if you put win 7 on a 751 you'll probably have issues to deal with for basic drivers, not impossible though

    Here's where you get your Win 8.1 update ISO

    I agree with the others here too, man. Download Classic shell and you'll be just fine with windows 8.1.

    I got my G751 a few days ago and did it and it's just like windows 7, but faster

    Thanks guys, I'll give 8.1 a go and see if it's bad as it's been hyped (doesn't sound like it will be tho lol)

    I forgot to mention Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for everyone when released who has W8.1 and W7 . I have W10 preview as dual boot on my G751 , its amazing so far and is similar to W7 and much faster than W8.1

    I hope ASUS will provide support for Windows 10 on the G751. It would be a real shame if it wasn't supported.

    I have bought this laptop with the hope that it would last 3 or 4 years until I sell it for another one -_- . I really hope that we will get the needed support for Windows 10 if it would mean an improvement from 8.1
