How to upgrade the Hard Drive in a G75VW?

Hi guys, I have an Asus G75VW-BHI7N07, and I want to add a SSD in the second bay and use it for the OS leaving the factory 1TB HD for storage. But I need some help with the following:

How can I create a Recovery Disk to install the OS (Windows 😎 in the SSD?. So far I can't find the Asus Recovery Utility; my G51JX have this software. But in Windows 8 I only have the option to do a factory recovery with the default Update and Recovery tool that is built in Windows 8.

And, do I have to change something in the BIOS (RAID)?

Any help in this matter would be great.

Cheers.
