Don't do a install right now. I still want to see your drive with the disk management.

I wanted to see if you still have the Asus factory Recover partition. You don't.

You have two options:
- Uninstall the AD credentials to make it work normally. You will have to find how to do it. I can't help you on it.
- Do a clean install. Clean Install Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

Making the Win 7 Ultimate installation disk.
You didn't answer if you have a Win 7 64 installation disk.
If you don't, download the Win 7 64 COEM Home Premium using the down loader. Se post #2

Use use Windows USB/DVD Download Tool - Microsoft Store or Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to create a boot able Win 7 installation flash disk.

If the source installation iso or disk wasn't Win 7 ultimate:
On the Win 7 installation flash disk created above, rename \sources\ei.cfg to \sources\ei.cfg.orig
When you go to install, it will ask what brand of Win 7 you want to install.

- Backup all your data files.
- Download all drivers for your laptop - ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Driver & Tools - G75VW
Save them on an external disk.
- Download and run LicenseCrawler - It will search for the licenses you have on your installation. Save the results on an external disk. You can use those licenses to reinstall the software s.
- Detach ALL other drives.
- Boot from the Win 7 installation USB flash disk. Go to install - advanced - delete ALL partitions (see post#10) - create new - proceed.
- Once finished, install all drivers till device manager doesn't show any yellow alert.
- For the updates - MS releases SP2 for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums
- Reinstall the other software s.
- Restore the data files from backup.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Thank you very much, Megahertz07 & torchwood! Mega, I apologize for missing that question about the installation disc. I don't have one, so I'll have to download according to the instructions in this thread. I'll check back in and update when I make progress.
