Digital River no longer exists to download from.
My ASUS recovery media does not work, producing the error "Cannot load imagex 0 from src WIM file." According to the posts I've found on other help forums (incl. ASUS' forums), the two answers were to update the BIOS to resolve the problem, or send it to an ASUS repair center. The BIOS update did not work, and I do not have the luxury to ship my computer for repair.
An OA disc image and installation, using the legal key on the bottom of my laptop, seems to be my next logical step. All resources I've found during my searches point to Digital River links which no longer function. The MS page for software recovery says I need to speak to my manufacturer for recovery media. The recovery media I paid for, as already stated, does not work.
Can someone please provide me with a link to this legal iso, so that I can get a clean install on my machine and resume work?
