I got an idea, I will take the Windows 7 disk with me and prove to them what's happening! This is crazy!

Always understand the return and Support policy terms before buying. It should be in writing.

You can call them anonymously first as though an interested customer to find out before pursuiing it.

Be aware that I only tried to help you with bypassing EFI, so Theog might be able to help you further getting installed using EFI per his Downgrade tutorial.

Let us know what happens.

According to ASUS, the model supports Windows 7 - see below, this is why I got it.

I hope they are open on weekends.

Anyway, I won't be able to refund the laptop.

My only way from here would be getting W8 OEM and doing a clean install on the SSD. Although this laptop is superior compared to the old one, it runs slower because of the slow HD and all the bloat! Even after I remove the bloat, it runs slow.

You can replicate Windows 7 all but Aero in Win8 and it's somewhat faster since Metro (nor Aero) isn't loaded when you install Windows 7 Start Menu for Windows 8.

Replica gadgets which can be undocked from sidebar to free float are at 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8.

This is almost exactly Windows 7, some say a little snappier.

Yea I already turned off the stupid Metro screen and have a third party start menu so now it feels like running Windows 7 but I am upset because I can't get the real thing but especially upset because I can't use my SSD (yet) so I have to spend more money to get yet *another* copy of Windows 8

Perhaps I can clone the HD to my SSD but are there any tools there that boot in UEFI mode?? All of the ones I know - I am not sure if they boot in UEFI. I will need to find out.

Also the tool would need to "resize" the partitions automatically because my SSD is 240GB and the HD is 1TB.

No, you never have to buy another copy of the OS than the one which comes preinstalled, which in the case of Win8 stores it's key in the BIOS. You own that copy for the life of the machine and should be able to reinstall it or at the very least run Factory Recovery.

I think the factory restore will restore the OS onto the same HD and will not give me an option to change the drive which is what I want to do - use the SSD. This is why I need a new disk so I can tell the install where to install.
