    Default AI RECOVERY doesnt detect my recovery disk

    Sorry forum I started the original thread here, and I had to make a new thread since the problem has changed.

    Missing recovery disk

    Ugly news, Asus store has informed me that they've ordered the recovery

    disks.However, I picked my laptop and tried to install windows on it. During

    the process I was asked to choose the partition I want to format when

    suddenly THe RECOVERY PARTITION APPEARED. I quickly installed windows

    and then installed the AI recovery program. It asked me to bring 5 blank

    DVD and the process had completed. I then restarted the computer and then

    changed the boot sequence to the DVD reader, AND THEN THIS ERROR

    appeared WInload.exe is missing ???. I tried to make another Copy of

    recovery dvds but the AI recovery cant read the partition disk !!!???? . I

    then formatted my windows and tried again but the same error keeps

    appearing.

    Ahhh, Im too old for such errors.

    thanx forum.

    IF anybody has G53 XT1 please help.

    Please correct me If I am wrong, you have win 7 and it will not boot to windows if you boot from the hard drive.,
    FIRST Do you have a second computer that you can boot up and look at the recovery DVD's just to be sure they are good?
    If you boot from recovery DVD you get the error correct?
    What happens if you use F9 after power on?

    AI Recovery works terribly. It never worked for me. I would just install windows 7 and then install your drivers. This will work much better overall, nothings runs as good as a fresh install. If you want a backup, use Windows 7 backup or Acronis.

    Great Advice man, That is the first thing I did with mine- Remove the 19 gig recovery partition, and clone the HD to an external HD, then I tested the image to verify that it worked B4 I needed it. W/O Chastity's driver reference it will not be easy, but certainly doable with drivers from ASUS's site.

    @JOSEA

    I will definitely try this, but Im afraid the same would occur to the DVD, the

    error message of winload.exe.

    Thanx a lot forum for helping me .

    Note, the advise (2 posts above) I gave was a random thought, it should work for an out of box computer. So the first DVD can be read with windows explorer, but booting from it does not work, nor does an F9 startup... Whew. The only other thing I can think if is to follow ValkerieFire's advice, load the drivers individually. If you need links to get them let us know.
    Have you already paid for the recovery disks from ASUS? If it was me I would cancel that order, there are excellent guides in this forum for clean installs of win 7.

    I would just grab a Genuine copy of Win 7 Home Prem and install and use the OEM key on the back of the G73. You will have to call Microsoft to get it activated, but it's a lot better than trying to figure out why the recovery disks aren't working. You also don't get the bloatware. Just remember to install the latest drivers found on Chastity's thread.
