Download an ISO for your Windows 7 edition from mydigitallife.info, burn it to a disc, install from it, and activate with the product key that should be on a sticker on the Asus.
You'll have a clean Windows install. This has nothing to do with the recovery partition or an image.[/QUOTE]
I have my own OS install disks, I was actually looking to burn the drivers
etc. to a DVD so I could use my own install disks.
