    I have Windows 7 64 bit and 32 bit recovery disk versions that came with my Asus laptop. I went to install the 32 bit version today to reformat because of an infection that nothing I had could clean and it told me to insert the driver disk. The only one I have says driver and utility disk is 64 bit. There is no 32 bit one.

    what drivers does it want, does the install continue without them? can you download the missing drivers from Asus site?

    No Idea I have Ubuntu on this at the moment. It can't run without it because it needs the second disk when its done installing. I can't do anything after that.
