Ok, here's how it went. I bought a Samsung Pro 256GB instead of the Basic 250GB. Installed everything fine and it all works no problem. Wonderful stuff. Although I advice other people with the same issue (not having a Prouct key or a Windows 8 CD) to download a pirated version to afterwards upgrade with your Pro key. This is only cause Microsoft (and ASUS tbh) were being retards about the Product Key. Sure my Pro key overrides the old key but there should still be an option to reinstall without so much hassle. It's a bit sad tbh.
Well, I must thank rewben and the others who helped me and made this forum experience epic. I don't really know how it works but I added some rep to you by clicking that star. Hopefully I did it correctly. You deserve it my friend.
Thanks ROG community, I will be back once things **** up again! xD

going back a little bit, I have the exact same problem, but in different conditions. Bought a G75VX, came with windows 8. Downgraded to windows 7 (because I really hated windows 8, to be honest... couldnt stand not having a start button and there were SO MANY compatibility issues). anyway, installed all the drivers except the wifi one, which I can't find (so now i have no wifi... 😕 ), and all my fn + something combos work EXCEPT fn + f9! I don't know why... scroll doesn't work either on the mousepad.

yeah, that's gonna be a problem. reinstall everything? after all the work I had with putting windows 7 in? finding all the drivers was kind of a nightmare... I don't really think it's worth reinstalling everything just because fn+f9 doens't work.

Might I suggest an alternative:
Go back to Windows 8, buy a copy of a program from a company called Stardock of a program called Start8 which will give you back the same start menu as Windows 7 but under windows 8.
They are still developing a lot of their stuff for Windows 8 but what is working is great for users who want their start menu back, or just need time to transition.
