Windows 7: How to do clean Win7 install on ASUS UX32A


13 Nov 2012   #21

Windows 7 64bit
 
 

Ok, thanks, I did everything, even restored back express cache. Now I have clean Windows 7. But one thing is very interesting: I installed all optional drivers and Asus utilities, and my zenbook now uses 500mb more RAM then before, when I had original Windows 7 from Asus with all bloatware how could it be?

Why would you do that? It says clearly in the tutorial to only import drivers from OEM after all IMportant and Optional Windows Updates are done and any are still missing in Device Manager.

It also says to wait to check performance before seeking any OEM software or hotfixes to solve specific missing functions or problems.

So it sounds like you ignored the kernel of the tutorial which is how Windows 7 handles drivers differently from XP (there is no user participation with drivers in Win8, which is a Windows 7 improvement) and reimported the factory bloatware.

Fail. I would do it over.

If not work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

I try to instal "Intel® Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Drive", and error occurs: "This computer does not meet minimum requirements for instaling this software.

Setup was downloaded from official Asus support page for my UX32A.

Any thoughts?

Why are you reinstalling factory bloatware if your goal is to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

Please answer the questions I asked in my last post as well.

Hi. The program which you recomend to install for auto detect drivers, is bullshit, because I installed newest official drivers from Asus support, and that program still detects that my drivers are bad, and offers to install "new" drivers, which are outdated, but marked as newer in that program.
For asus bloatware, I wanted to install official programs from asus support to see what they do bad or good to my pc, to test it. Not all programs from support is bloatware

Excuuuuse me? Which program did I recommend to auto-detect drivers? There is no such program recommended ever in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which gives the Best Practices for getting a perfect install based on thousands helped with here.

As it says if you'd read it, Windows 7 is driver-complete in the installer and then quickly updated via optional Windows Updates. Only after all Updates are done should you import any missing drivers from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC, nothing more.

Then as it also says in the tutorial, if you have any functions import any software or hotfixes for those functions too.

You need to watch your mouth as you do not speak that way to volunteers here unless you want to be booted into outer cyberspace.

You gave that program link in post #22, as you can see, you edited that post and deleted link of the program. The program was called "Easy Driver Pro"

I have never linked that program before. Was it an ad that appears if you're not signed into SevenForums?

Anyone here knows I do not link driver programs for the first driver-complete OS, but always advise to use the drivers given by the installer and then quickly updated via optional Windows Updates after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware.

This is stated clearly in the tutorial. If you are missing any drivers after all Updates are installed then import them from the Asus Support Downloads webpage. Do not use a driver program. I did not and would not recommend one.
