Yes, back up your files first.

You said you tried to run Asus Factory Recovery using the F9 key. Is this the key given on the first screen to run Recovery? Most Asus' use the F8 key for Factory Recovery, on the Repair My Computer menu. Have you tried that?

Are you running the commands from within the OS?

The commands are to be run from the Windows 7 installer's Command Line as stated.

Please follow the instructions carefully, reading every step thoroughly.

So to install Windows 7 I should use this UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with guide?

Is it normal that my Disk 1 partition 1 is OEM (reserved) , not like in guide above MSR (reserved) ?

Did you confirm you have EFI BIOS?

If so you have been given the steps to install in EFI mode, and how to remove EFI mode to install normally.

I do not accept private messages for help.

You need to pay attention and manage the steps we give you, not ask us to do it for you.

In post #7 I show you how to determine if you have an EFI BIOS, and how to disable it to install normally if you do.

Earlier you were given the steps to install to an EFI BIOS if you have one: UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums
