Any ideas?
Don't worry guys, think I have sorted it. I burned the iso files separately as the Asus recovery software gave me an option to save them then after the recovery partition was mounted and copied so at least I have them for back up. I presume after I have deleted and formatted partition/drive that if I ever want to restore back to shop factory settings these would do that even though I had deleted the recovery partition?

Thanks

I can confirm that now you have your Asus recovery software on DVDs, you will be able to restore your computer back to the factory state should you want to and the restore will include a rebuild of the Asus recovery partition.

The main benefit of keeping the recovery partition is that a restore from it is a lot quicker than a restore from your recovery DVDs.

Thank you Seavixen for confirming

I am using Asus OEM Windows 7 Home and am thinking on getting Windows 7 pro. If I replace this with the new OS will I have to install certain Asus software as well or will the new OS install everything?

Thanks

Yours come with USB3? If so that is likely the one you need as for USB2/1.1 it will just use the native Windows USB driver. Asus has 3 of them listed for that model,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download N73SV

just go with the latest one.

Edit: That sounds like it could be the "Keyboard Device Filter Utility", which is under Others.

Have you also checked optional Windows Updates for newer drivers for your hardware? Most drivers not in the installer are delivered by Updates in Win7.
