    Bought a n550jk-cm080h that comes with a 256gb ssd disk and blueray drive from the factory. Feels like a great notebook, but havent done that much with it.

    I dont understand. How could you make a usb flash drive after you had installed the ssd? Also did you use the migration software or not?
    I have a EVO 248 gb ssd, but im unsure how to preceed with getting a USB flash drive with the operating system from the asus. Also do you need all the other partitions that is on the factory hdd ?

    Ah... what a hassle... I actually read your post, just before I attempted to change my Harddrive in the N550JK to a SSD... So I made a Recovery USB Flash before the work.
    I then had the audacity, to expect boot sequence to be assigned to ports rather than Hardware IDs, as I used a HDD Caddy, and replaced the BluRay Drive with the original HDD.
    When it started up, I then removed the OS Partition on the old HDD, which caused a crash, as it actually booted from the old HDD instead of the SSD.
    No biggie, I thought... removed the old HDD again, and tried a reboot - but the SSD was not bootable anymore... ok... I have my recovery flash - I'll just boot with that, and restore Windows on the SSD, no?
    No. I tried any and every trick I found on the internet. I could not recover from the flash... either the partition was missing (although registered as C) or it was not big enough (original HDD was 1TB, while the SSD was 500GB).
    Ok... removed SSD, put back orginal HDD, recovered from HDD, all fine... shrunk OS Partition (but forgot to re-do the recovery flash at this point, as I was beginning to become frustrated), redid the SSD copy, booted from that, installed the HDD while running, removed all Partitions on the HDD and successfully now have a plain Data HDD... but despite my SSD having recovery Partitions, I cannot create a recovery flash as some "files are missing"... lol... I think I'll just extract the Windows Serial, and find an ISO next time. As a long time user of Windows (since 2.0) I am not a friend of 8.1 yet... ;)

    A recovery usb doesn't actually contain the Windows files. You will have to download a copy from a file sharing service. I can tell you from experience that neither Microsoft nor Asus will help you reinstall Windows. You have to resort to some sketchy file downloading to get it done unless you have access to cds.

    The only convenient part is the Windows key is in your BIOS so you don't have to have that. Just use the iso file and the program from Microsoft that lets you create a bootable usb from the iso file.

    I can't imagine that that is even remotely possible in this laptop, it must just be the program misreading the information from the hardware.

    Must be a glitch caused by Optimus.

    I'll see your 8 and raise 4.

    dxdiag12gb.png

    Screenshot is made using N550JV and running dxdiag with nvidia gpu as designated GPU selected via context menu (run with graphics processor...). System memory is 16GB.

    Running dxdiag with default option shows a vram of 1792MB for HD 4600.
