Asus G551JW installing Windows 7 Disaster !!!!!!!! HELP

Just Horrible things happened !!!!!!!!
I dont know where exactly should i start , i tried to make Dual operating systems win 8& 7 in different Boot setup ,but i noticed that Asus stupid motherboard locked this option to make a separated Drive to install windows 7 .... While the middle of installation windows 7 the laptop crashes automatically for unknown error then it deleted windows 8.1 and 7 and the following crash error appeared ( the OME gate is locked by manufacture ) and another disaster happened that SSD hardisk integrated with HDD in 1 drive "930GB" ....

Then I successfully installed windows 7 ultimate 64Bit on my G551JW ! but now another problems appeared that " Most of Drivers are not supported "... Seriously the OS running good as well but the issue is most of drivers from asustek no longer working !!!
So be aware do not downgrade to win 7 EVER , maybe am the only 1 who was too courage to do this ! And now am gonna install windows 8.1 again with missing files of course ....

I need just a request please , if i will install windows 8.1 from official Microsoft edition,that means no drivers will be shipped with clean installation!!! So i have to download everything from beginning! .... I need some 1 who had same model to upload his model Backup with all drivers please instead of doing many ugly instructions ! Is it possible !?


Specific ADVICE : If you are trying to make a Dual-Boot operating systems its quite impossible in this Model .

I Know Windows 8 & 10 are So Ugly ,But Windows 7 is completely unusable to run drivers 😞
I really hope ASUS gonna design supported drivers for Windows 7

I really confused about this point , when i reset windows 8.1 from pc settings , windows will back to manufacture settings with all drivers installed but now nothing happened . Just an empty windows "leave this aside"

Another problem about installing windows in SSD hardisk .. Now i dont know why the windows integrated 2 hard drives in 1 .... I tried to separate them but still dont know why its even slow when starting up ... Before it takes only 10 seconds to load , now 30 seconds

oh **** ? ... Try removing ssd and boot .. to see what happens ...

Is there any way to get windows 8.1 edition from ASUS again ??? Or any possible method to recover old edition ?

Try Recovering . There is always Asus Recovery Partition (factory state).
