guys, I need some help..when I bought my g55,it was in windows 7..then upgraded it to windows 8..after receiving it back from the asus service center due to rma, then reformatted it back to the windows 7 default settings with 2 partitions..then I tried to upgrade back to windows 8 by the windows upgrade assistant and it was a SUCCESS..my problem is, all the windows 7 files are still in the hdd, including the recovery partition and the 2 partitions..i want to merge all into 1 partition,format the whole hdd and reinstall windows 8 clean again without the old windows 7 files and the recovery partition...so how do I make it happen because I cant access the bios during startup in windows 8..please do help me as this is urgent, thanks

ps.if I burn the windows 8 iso in a dvd, does it provide a hdd options? and how do I boot from dvd?#

please help me, thanks

Press and hold down the F2 key when you hit the power button on the laptop. Do not continually press the F2 just hold it down as you power on. You should now be in the BIOS. I hope that does the trick for you. Good luck!

does installing windows 8 from usb enables hdd options? because installing windows 8 from windows 7 does not have hdd options, thanks

yes it makes it as if you are booting from a dvd,
it will let you format all the hdds and install from new.

here are the steps to initialize a fresh install using usb stick on a w8. as for dvd install, it's the same thing: spam esc key to select uefi:dvd.rom.

good luck.

i think it is able to delete recovery partition, and find 3th part utility to change back to one, but i suggest you ghost your HDD first when you are doing.
