    Hello,

    I purchased an Asus G752VL-BHI7N32 laptop earlier this week and I wiped out the HDD to make room for a fresh windows 7 install...only to get hit with a ton of errors. Can someone tell me if it's possible to install windows 7 ultimate on this laptop? Are drivers even available?

    I also need some info on GPT vs MBR formatting. I'm reading that GPT is better, but the windows 10 image that I got from using the media creation tool used mbr. Is this a big deal?

    Ok I am 110% confused as to how to do this. I have my intel raid drivers and I purchased windows 7 pro. I can extract it to a usb, but I still get nowhere. I even tried slipstreaming the raid drivrs in with ntlite, but I didn't get anywhere so I must have messed up. What on earth am I doing wrong?
