Hey guys. I got my dell desktop to work after following all the instructions from you posters like greg and barefoot in my other thread.
Today i tried to do the same thing for my laptop. Its an Asus u45jc laptop. I have the Windows 7 Recovery CD for it and the CD with the Driver
and Utility CD as well.
However, i encountered multiple problems.
I followed the steps on this site who tells you how to Complete Walk-through For Doing A Clean Windows 7 Install
The problem that occurs here is
The next screen displays three install options. Depending on your personal needs, you will have to decide which option is best for you. To help you decide, here is what each option means:
Recover Windows to first partition only
This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD
This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitions
This option deletes all partitions from your hard drive and creates two new partitions "C" (60%) and "D" (40%).
My laptop has one hard drive, so my choice is "Recover Windows to entire HD". When you have made your decision, click the "Next" button.
Please note that this process doesn't delete or modify the hidden partition on the hard drive which contains the original factory install. If for some reason you want to return to the original factory install, start by removing the Recovery disc. Then, power cycle the laptop and immediately start tapping the F9 key. Select and press the Enter key over "Windows Setup [EMS Enabled]". The options from that point forward are similar to the ones described here.
The next screen displays another warning. If you accept this, click the "Next" button.
The next screen displays your final warning. If you accept this, click the "Finish" button and the process will start.
Please note that you might notice after clicking the "Finish" button a bit of a pause before the progression gauge begins to move, this is normal. The process can take about 25 minutes to reach 100 percent.
I chosed the 2nd one. Is that fine? Or is the 1st option the best? The thing is this. After i followed all those steps in the link, i noticed the screen resolution and all those things look weird like if i'm missing a ton of stuff. So then i go to control panel, devices and printers and see a computer logo in device with my name-pc on it and a yellow exclammation point. This is what i did on my dell desktop to fix the resolution and all that other stuff that felt like my computer was missing a ton of drivers
I then right click it and do windows update. However, my computer keeps on freezing a ton over and over again. I have tried doing this clean install 2 times already and nothing ever works.
Does anyone who have an asus laptop can help me here?
