Asus CM1630 Stuck In Recovery Mode.
I've been trolling Google for about an hour now and haven't found anyone with this exact problem (which worries me a bit).
My boyfriend got several viruses on his Asus desktop computer. After multiple attempts and anti-virus programs we decided that it was best to just go ahead and restore his computer to factory defaults.
We backed up files that he wanted to keep then followed the instructions from the online manual (Asus CM1630 Manual page 66) to do a System Recover since we didn't have the CD.
Everything looked like it was going well, no errors during recovery, but after the reboot when the recover was finished, the computer brought us back to the Recovery Window after an error "RDVD folder not exist!", an error I can't find much information on. You can click "OK" then exit out of the Recovery window, but it gives you a "Disk 0 doesn't exist", restarts, and throws you back to the "RDVD" error.
Only thing I can gather from this is that for some reason it's not writing to the partition properly. Again, we don't have the $50 CD to resintall the OS (Essentio Recovery Software).
However, I did find this site that clams to have official ISO images for Windows 7: Download Windows 7 ISO (Official 32-bit and 64-bit Direct Download Links) « My Digital Life I'm tempted to just burn the ISO image to a CD and try to reinstall it that way, but he doesn't have any of the paper work or anything so if those installs require an activation code, we're plumb out of luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. <3

Yes you can use the downloaded ISO from Digital Life for the version you are licensed for.
You should have a COA sticker on the desktop with your Product Key.
Every PC shipped with Windows is required to have this.
You do need the Product Key to activate windows.
Here is a tutorial by gregrocker with all the instructions for this.
