    Well its very easy to just restore that Image of your OS Drive with windows 7 usually takes me 15 to 20 minutes and I'm right back where I was at the time I made that Image!! Asus is not likely to support windows 10 on any G models below the G750 maybe not even them. They have always stopped updating models that they are not still selling. If you really want to run 10 then you'll have to source out working drivers and work around. Besides this forum there are the http://forum.notebookreview.com/foru...ok-forum.1087/ and the https://www.tenforums.com Also Goggle will be helpful.
    Personally with my G75 I don't plan on upgrading It to Windows 10 for at least a few months if at all after the first major SP. I'll watch out here and the other forums and deside if its worth the hassle or not. I lke windows 7 a lot and windows 8.1 even better for this notebook 10 may not be in the works

    You mention having only 30 days to roll back to 7? the offer from MS is 1 year to upgrade to 10 for free then that free version is for as long as you have the notebook. If you have the recommended Image of Win 7 you can restore that anytime you want?

    Thank you all for your input! This is especially helpful for the driver issues I'm anticipating we may have with some devices and OEM software!

    For those of you who need the ISO, you can download it from this page - make sure you are selecting the correct version 32/64 bit:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/windows10

    AUS Win10 upgrade website: http://www.asus.com/event/2015/osupgrade/upgrade.html

    Perhaps they will consider supporting it after all?

    Keep the comments, benchmarks, experiences coming!!

    Does anyone have experiences to share with DirectX 12 and benchmarks/graphics/gaming/video?

    Thanks!

    Please let us know what you decide on your G75 and if you are willing to put a list of drivers / sources / links for drivers together, it would certainly help the whole community very much! My main reason for considering Win10 upgrade is for DirectX upgrade and potential performance increases. However the next question would be if the GPU drivers from Nvidia would be Win10 compatible or be problematic?

    I had the same problem just after the upgrade , but ones NVIDIA and other drivers got updated (some got updated via the windows update , but i had to update some of them via the NVIDIA control panel)

    Apart from that , i have not seen any other problems , may be cuz i dont play a lot of games these days.

    Well lets hope they do support these older notebooks after all this one is barley over 3 years old!! Hopefully everyone that does the upgrade to 10 will post in this thread how they get everything working or don't? If enough do the Mods will make it a Sticky so it will be easy for everyone to find.

    About three months ago, I purchased a used G75VW that came with the Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Evaluation Edition installed. It was a pretty early version, and I was a bit nervous. The guy who previously had the ROG was an IT Professional. Fast forward to 8-9-2015, and I am now on Build 10162 - the second major upgrade since getting the G75.

    I've used the laptop extensively, both for business (Adobe CS6) and personal use (email, web-surfing, videos, gaming on Steam, etc. ) My overall impression is WOW! Microsoft finally got their **** together and created the awesome OS that most of their core users have been pleading with them to release! I've used every OS they have produced going back to MS-DOS, and had decided that Windows 7 was their crowning achievement. I do video production and have used it at work everyday for five years. Which, of course, was why they decided to create Windows 8 - just to piss me off. However, they have redeemed themselves.

    From the moment I began using it, Windows 10 has been running almost flawlessly. It has all the power and appeal of Windows 7, but with some additional technological flair and function that enhances my computer experience, and doesn't force me to put up with a Smartphone interface, or bogdown the system with unnecessary software / app crap.

    With only a few minor exceptions, all of my software has been loading and running fine. The only exceptions have been Adobe CS5, and the most recent Serif Creative Suite. However, these could also be driver issues, or something else. I also have the issue someone else metioned regarding the headphone / speaker function. It doesn't switch over with the cable being plugged in. I have to manually change the default. Anyway, final word... I am very pleased. CUDOS MICROSOFT.

    Just upgraded my G74SX-3DE to Windows 10 and it seems I ran into a few issues, so hope those of you who have it working can chime in:

    As I'm using the ASUS Win10 info page here as a guide:
    http://www.asus.com/event/2015/osupgrade/upgrade.html

    referencing the guide here http://www.asus.com/event/2015/osupg...html#ap-driver

    It appears everything is working except for the following:
    ASUS USB Charger Plus - the guide says to install v4.1.6 or above except when ASUS USB Charger Plus won't start as it will have the error
    "m_bBiosSupportV2 is false" - does anyone here have USB Charger Plus working in Win 10 and if so, what version are you using?
    Update: I'm using v2.0.8 which is for Windows 7 and it seems to work fine.

    ASUS Splendid - Vivid Mode has no function - the guide mentions to "Need to update ASUS Splendid to v3.11.0001 or above via ASUS Support Site." - has anyone here been able to find ASUS Splendid v3.11.0001 or above? Managed to find this at thanks to a fellow forum member: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/...VER3110001.zip
    Except it won't install as it keeps saying cannot find icm file so the installer exits.

    Also, the upgrade didn't install some default win 10 apps for example like the calculator app so pressing the calculator button or running the calculator app does nothing except flash the screen really fast, the correct way to fix this is to use Powershell in Administrative Mode making sure you don't have any apps opened to reinstall all default apps with the following command in after you see the prompt in Powershell:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

    Other than that, there is no default app listed for Calendar in settings even though Calendar app is installed.

    Some additional notes:
    When one does a upgrade, it downloads Win10 to C:\$Windows.~BT and you will notice that under C:\$Windows.~BT\Drivers there will be the drivers for some of the devices on your system which I think is things that Microsoft doesn't provide drivers for or it could be the reverse.

    In any case, my bluetooth was not working so I installed the following:
    This one is the latest for 32/64bit being Bluetooth Suite 8.0.1.336:
    http://tiny.cc/vamx1x

    Also, make sure to get the latest Intel Chipset Installation Drivers:
    Intel Chipset 10.1.2.8 (WHQL) for Windows 7/8/8.1/10:
    http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/...-download.html

    I also just updated the following a few minutes ago:
    Qualcomm/Atheros Wireless LAN Win10 32/64 specific drivers v10.0.0.321:
    http://drivers.mydrivers.com/drivers/493_197321.htm

    RealTek HD Audio Driver 6.0.1.7581 dated August 11, 2015 is now available:

    Finally successfully upgraded my G75VW-BBK5 yesterday to Windows 10. Here's what happened with my attempts:

    1) Attempted the update through windows update and it failed. It would download the update files, reboot, get to the first black progress screen with the big circle and the percent. It would then restart and report that it failed. Tried this 3 times and it wouldn't work, so I downloaded the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool from (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...n-tool-install) and stuck it on an 8GB USB stick.

    2) Totally unrelated to the update process, I found out that my left USB ports for whatever reason cannot consistently maintain a USB 3.0 connection whilst trying to set up the USB stick (looks like this is a common problem [http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...ide-USB-ports] and the solutions in the thread didn't work, so only USB 2.0 devices on the left side from now on.)

    3) Also unrelated to the update process, I found that my system was having difficulty bringing up the Safe Mode boot menu at startup when pressing F8 and the System Recovery key (F9) wasn't responding. Also was having instances where powering up the laptop would just hang at a black screen then power down itself. After a few rounds of that then it would stay powered on and actually boot properly. I upgraded my BIOS to version 223 within the BIOS and now power on and the F8 and F9 keys work properly (odd I know).

    4) Now that I had a more reliably operating computer, I tried to update from the created USB stick. Turns out it too would also fail at the same point, but at least this method reported an error something along the lines of "Update failed at SAFE_BOOT failure at creating ROLL_BACK" or something like that (sorry, I can't find my google search for it in my history). After researching it on Google, it was determined that Windows 10 update sometimes has problems with dual hard drives. This was the case for my G75VW as I have an SSD for my OS and programs, and the stock 1TB HDD for my user folders and data. Since the Windows 10 updater creates a restore point, I'm guessing it was having problems with the data being spread across 2 drives. I disconnected the 1TB HDD, booted up, then started the update by running the executable off the USB stick and the update process went a lot further.

    5) At some point in the upgrade process the tool asked if I was upgrading. I selected the upgrade option and then it told me that I needed to remove the installation media, restart my computer, allow it to boot normally and let it continue the upgrade process. When I rebooted my computer I got a "No boot device detected, please insert boot media and press any key". I would get this even if I put the USB stick back in and rebooted. So I rebooted, pressed the ESC key at the ASUS logo and selected as a boot device my SSD. That worked and the update continued to the black screen with the big circle, now at 50%.

    6) The upgrade prgressed to 75% and rebooted again, and I got that "no boot device" error again. Did the same thing as before and it progressed from 75% to 100%. I checked the BIOS and the SSD was removed from the boot order, so I put it back in and haven't had any issues since.

    7) Once in Windows 10 I noticed the following issues:
    a. Synaptics Touch Pad worked, but didn't have any of the gesture capability;
    b. No sound;
    c. fn+NumEnter doesn't bring up Calculator
    d. 3 unidentified devices (further research determined it was my Wacom tablet, Razer Surround, and the Atheros Bluetooth)
    e. G700s wireless mouse was not being detected by the logitech software.
    f. Razer Nostromo was not loading profiles.
    *edit: I don't use much of the ASUS utilities that came pre-installed so I can't comment on those.

    Here is how I fixed (or tried to fix) each issue:
    7a: Read through the guide here: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...-to-Windows-10 didn't have the energy or patience to do all that so I just downloaded the latest Win 8 driver from the ASUS support page (http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/..._VER162117.zip), uninstalled the older Win 7 version of it, then installed the Win 8 driver. Restarted and it works and I have all the gestures back.

    7b: Read through and followed this guide here to get the sound back: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...10-Work-Around

    7c: Uninstalled the ATK package and installed the Windows 8 version from the ASUS support site: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/...64_Z100023.zip this worked but now the ROG button doesn't show on screen which power profile it's cycling to. The button works as it actually changes the power profile, it just doesn't show up on screen as it did on Win7 and with the older ATK package. Too lazy and not critical for me, so I'm not going to fix it right now. *edit: I'm going to try this package here: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/..._VER100038.zip to see if that works.

    7d: Wacom tablet was fixed by uninstalling the old driver and installing the newest one from Wacom. Razer surround still doesn't work, so I just removed that device from the device manager. Atheros bluetooth was fixed by uninstalling the old Atheros drivers and installing the Windows 8.1 driver from the ASUS support page: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/..._VER801306.zip that seemed to work.

    7e & f: Downloading the latest updated software solved those issues.

    8) Having upgraded from Windows 7, I prefer Windows 7 still. There are some neat things with Windows 10, but overall it aesthetically feels like it's been slapped together and left unpolished.
