im getting a windows 8 laptop but i want to install windows 7 but i cant find drivers :(

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

  1. 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

    just install classic shell if you do not like metro.

    basically returns the regular windows desktop.

    "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."
