Hi to All,


I am a newcomer to this forum. I have been without a laptop for the past ten days. I have an Asus u52f laptop. I would like to do a fresh reinstallation and bring it to the factory settings.  It originally had Windows 7 Home Premium.  I intend to do an upgrade to Windows 7 Professional. In the heat of a virus/malware attack that I was encountering, I decided to reformat the whole C drive.  By so doing, I unintentionally deleted the hidden partition.


I have ordered a recovery disk from Asus.  I would appreciate knowing what to do next when the recovery disk arrives.  Another advice that I seek is about AVG free anti-virus.  Does it work efficiently?


Thank you,

Rather than waiting on Asus, why not download a ISO image you can burn to a disc to create an installation disc.



How to burn ISO image using Windows Burn Disk Image.
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.
5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.
6.  After the image has been created click on Close
Please note:  In order to boot from this DVD you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.
After installing the operating system you will need to download the drivers.  You can find these here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
