okay so im buying a laptop for entertainment on the go (ASUS N550JV-DB71) its the perfect laptop that i`ve set my mind too. however it only comes with windows 8 and i want to install windows 7. i got a copy of windows 7 and a new ssd for the laptop. i know i need drivers but will the windows8 drivers work on windows 7? idk :??:  i checked asus`s website and looked for drivers for windows 7 for this specific model but cant find any :(  does this mean im stuck with windows 8 ? or a driver-less windows 7 ? (i cant get used to windows 8 user interface i tired) i know how slow a laptop can be with out its righted drivers

If in your CD/dvd driver and on ASUS website doesn't provided win7 drivers for your laptop, You need an extra work :D  you need to check out every single hardware/chip on your notebook manually and download it from that chipmaker web support

"Asus only provides drivers for Windows 8 on its website. Nevertheless, you can use Windows 7. We tried it. Many drivers can be downloaded from the web site of the manufacturers (Intel, Nvidia). Several Windows 8 drivers from Asus website can also be used, e.g., the Wi-Fi driver. However, the Gigabit Ethernet driver from the Asus website could not be installed. A suitable driver is available at Realtek's website."
