How to start recovery from recovery partition on a Asus A6000 ?

My laptop came with Windows 7 installed already. I need to re-install it however there were no disks and in fact the computer doesn't have a DVD drive anyway.

There is a folder on the pc called "C:\eSupport" however this doesn't appear to contain Windows installation just a few drivers etc. What should I do?

When it was new there were a lot of extra programs installed that I did not need. I was hoping to do a clean installation of the operating system without any asus 'extras'? –  user35356786 Dec 20 '10 at 15:36
    
Microsoft has a utility to copy a W7 install disc to a flash drive for installation via USB, you would need a W7 ISO of the install disc...store.microsoft.com/help/iso-tool –  Moab Dec 20 '10 at 17:22

If you don't want any "additional features" you'd have to install from a flash drive. Check if your computer supports booting from a USB device.

Now you have to obtain a Windows 7 ISO, up to you is how to get it.

This guide details how to install a fresh Windows 7 system from a flash drive.
