Windows 7: Wifi button does not work on asus 1215B with W7x64 Ultimate

alphanumeric, I agree with you, but I have already installed the asus drivers and nothing changed the situation. Because that I am trying to fix the (maybe) last error visible in my netbook. I will try again installing the drivers, anyway.

there's not much in that file it only does:
PNPINST64.EXE 2KSETUP.INI

Does is install succesfully? Post error messages
contents 2KSETUP.INI :
[Common]
HardwareID=*PNP0303
DriverName=KB filter Driver

Does your wifi toggle key and other function keys work now?
I have tried command prompt, power shell, run as administrator and safe mode. None of them work.
My 2ketup.ini is:
[Common]
HardwareID=ACPI\ATK0100
DriverName=ATK0100 ACPI UTILITY

Nothing appeared in device manager. The unknow device did not work with the atk driver. I will try every step again.
Reboot done (many times). Wifi works fine, but dont turn off, neither by button nor by FK-2.
How come you have a different 2ksetup.ini?

goto ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download Eee PC 1215B
and select the ATK driver. unzip to empty folder. rightclick install.cmd and run as administrator? any failures?

PNPINST64.EXE 2KSETUP.INI

What's the error message when you type that command in elevated command prompt? First "CD" to the folder where those files are.

The hidden partition likely contains an image of the factory setup. The recovery utility just restores the image. If so you will have a hard time recovering the drivers from it in any kind of easily usable state.

One way around this may be to use the anytime upgrade option instead of actually installing Ultimate. It would have been easy to do originally but could be problematic now depending on whether you can restore to Starter again or not. Going back to Starter using the recovery utility should install all the original drivers and restore functionality to the buttons. It should be just the way it was the first time you turned it on. Then just use the anytime upgrade option to unlock the Ultimate features. All you should have to do is enter your Ultimate product code. The glitch in this is that installing Ultimate may have broken the link to the recovery utility when the boot record was overwritten.

diskpart
lis disk
list part (which one is recovery partition?)
sel part 1 (if partition 1 is recovery partition)
detail part

post output please
