I want to have a fresh installation on this new machine that I have. I am not a fan of Windows 8 and this is the OS that is currently installed. I prefer windows 7 or windows 10 (Which is now currently installed on my Desktop from a free upgrade) I don't have any discs or recovery discs on this machine because I got it from a friend who left already to move out-of-town and since I am planning to install a Fresh copy of OS in this machine neither downgrade to win7 or upgrade to win10 I don't intend or plan to have one right now but I do plan to create after a fresh new os installation. I did try to install win7 earlir and manage to boot from a usb to install but I noticed the partioning scheme of the machine and I'm a bit worried about that. I read that the SSD acts as a cache on this machine and I don't want to lose that feature or any features that this machine is supposed to have. Note: · The machine now prompts me to activate, I can't activate online · I don't have any discs, recovery, nor back-ups with this one. I'd love to have one on a fresh installation on this machine · On ASUS website I see no driver support for windows 7 only windows 10, win8 and win8.1 My Concerns: · How do I correctly install a Fresh new OS on this Ultrabook on windows 7? Considering the partitions that I noticed and it's features. · Is it possible to directly install a windows 10 OS (FREE)? · I've been using Driverpack (drp.su) or other driverpackages since.. when installing Drivers, Is that alright?
