    why the recovery partition with 25 gb size is not listed?
    p.s this is not cmd at boot, does it make any difference?

    Look in the Recovery and other folders on the drive to find the two .wim files specified in the instructions. Once you add the correct .wim file using EasyBCD you should reboot to a Dual Boot menu to choose Recovery to boot. You can then run Factory Recovery so your sister will have the worst possible install of Win7 one can have.

    Since you're using WIn7 now, did you think about telling us what the problems are so we can easily resolve them for you? I don't remember anyone ever giving up on a Clean Reinstall before they even tried the actual steps to do one. It's annoying that you don't want to follow the steps to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 but instead ask us to do a very tricky workaround to boot your Recovery partition which results in a crap install.

    Dude, calm down, why are you so obsist? I know you want to help but I have asked a couple of question and you answered them, you have suggested clean instal but idk, so if you wanna help do it, if you don't, it's ok, this is an open society, but either ways thank you.
    About my problem, my windows 7 I have is worthless, my built in camera keep connecting and disconnecting and it's so slow, I even downloaded it from internet, also on oem windows 7, laptop was so smooth, you can't imagine how, despite the craps, it has but these craps are really usefull, it has everything I need.
    Btw I have found winre.wim only

    I am as calm as can be. But you need to know where you are: the top tech forums in web history. We don't like helping do things we recommend against here, and you are asking me to help you do the known worst without even trying the real steps to do a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. So I resist.

    Go to the Asus Support Downloads webpage for your exact model and import the Camera Software posted there. If you'll tell us the laptop's full model number we will help you find it. Rightclick the download's .exe to Run as Administrator, install the software to see if that resolves the problem.

    What other problems are there with the Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?
    Did you enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then run all Important and Optional Windows Updates, with requested reboots, until there are no more when you go back to Check for Updates? If you didn't then you don't have all the drivers WIn7 wants anyway.

    All my drivers are from asus support downloads which I have download after a clean install but it keeps doind this sound (like whe you unplug a device)
    Now, k have found winre.wim only, do I use it? And when I dual noot from it, does it do samething like key f9?

    Do not pretend you have tried a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 when you have not done it correctly or even made an effort to get it sorted with those of us who have helped do tens of thousands without a single complaint.

    You should not have imported any drivers from Asus SUpport Downloads webpage except those still missing after installing all Important and Optional Windows Update, which is where WIn7 delivers the driver it wants. There should be more than just a cam driver on the page, some sort of supporting software that allows you to see yourself in addition to the functions the cam can perform with just its driver connecting to a messenger, Facebook, etc.

    If the PC is making a kerplunk sound then you can monitor the driver it is trying to install in the bottom right System tray animation if you click on it right away. Then you know which driver needs replacing, probably with the Windows Update driver you never installed because the steps were not followed.

    You need Install.wim or winre.wim added to a Dual Boot menu exactly as shown in Boot Recovery Partition using EasyBCD which will reboot to a Dual Boot menu with the choice to commence Recovery. Have your files backed up as it will likely wipe out the entire hard drive unless you are given other choices.

    Go to the first post and see the site that supports this function and kt gives three options, so if I've booted winre.wim, I would get these three options?
    Also I have tried skype and I ca not make a video call unless I click repair on my virtual camera driver (which is from the site) also when it doss that sound there is no tray icon
