I installed the WIN 8 Dev Preview on the Q550 and I have to say the PEN input software is unbelievably better with WIN 8. Unfortunately everything else is sluggish and there are quite a few bugs with WIN 8 in that format.
So I was hoping to very simply re-install WIN 7 pro. BUT WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!
The problem is that you must use the RECOVERY DISCS (which I do have along with the Fujitsu DVD drive) but when you go into recovery mode you cannot use the pen. So to use a USB Keyboard you lose connection with the DVD drive.
For a fresh re-install - sadly you have to use the RECOVERY Tools on the Boot disc and not the recovery partition on the drive.
So I am in a real catch 22 situation.
Has anyone here had to do this.
Again sadly the TECH support people simply have no idea how to do this. and have passed me onto a TECH company instead.
Will I have to get the Q550 dock? I am happy to do that if it means I will be able to get the recovery process going but has anyone got any other ideas on this?
