Have you used all of the Win 7 Ultimate keys?

No but that isn't even the problem. I just want to run the laptop.recovery and set it back to the way it came. I simply.cannot boot the recovery Partition. I am going to try deleting the c partition and seeing if that will allow it to "see" the recovery partition as bootable

Have you considered going to the ASUS website to learn how to use their recovery partition?

Deleting C won't make Recovery any more bootable. If you tried the hotkey to boot it (which link was likely wiped out when you clean installed) and cannot find boot.wim or winre.wim to add to a Boot Menu with EasyBCD, then your options remain to order Recovery Disks from Asus Tech Support, or do the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Can you tell us more about this newegg 3-pack Ultimate purchase you made, perhaps a link?

The three pack was a "system builders" OEM bundle. Just came with one DVD but three keys. I bought it a while ago.

Also, I am not even trying to install the ultimate at all anymore. Maybe if it had been a little more painless!

If you can't find the correct .wim file to add to Dual Boot menu to boot Recovery, try marking it Active, reboot to see if it will run now.

If not your options are to order Recovery Disks from your PC's Tech Support, or download and burn to DVD the ISO for the OS which is licensed for that PC and which appears on the COA sticker attached to it.

So I ended up doing the clean install of windows. I originally used the Microsoft USB tool But it could not install to gpt drives. So i formatted the usb drive as fat32 with windows on it and booted it via uefi. It installed fine no issues. I used drivers from.the recovery partition and no bsods. Activated windows and am home free. Though i would still like to make the recovery boot for future use
