    And finally, we understand why you have that extra option on your screen.

    If you want Windows 7 back then why don`t you just reinstall Windows 7 ?

    You can then create a Windows 10 install DVD should you ever want to clean install W10.

    And we will gladly post the direct Microsoft link to download an iso file of the W7 version you want so you can burn it to dvd or create a usb installer.

    That is if you do not have a W7 installer.

    Still baffled as to why your usb keyboard is not working.

    My windows 10 was a free upgrade from my windows 7 and I do not have a windows 10 disc. The computer gods really don't like me.
    You can download Windows 10 from Microsoft. You can also make a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive or DVD with it, or like I do, mount it in Kyhi's recovery drive to install Windows 10. You don't need a product key - just click the link for "I don't have a product key" on the installation screen that asks for one.

    It's due to the upgrade of existing Windows 7 drivers. Probably the chipset drivers that run the USB ports. A clean install of Windows 10 will fix the problem because it replaces those upgraded drivers with fresh drivers for Windows 10 right from ground zero. The problem with trying to fix the problem without a clean install is that we don't know exactly which driver is the problem - and it could also be a problem hiding in the registry resulting from registry entries that worked with old Windows 7 drivers which is now causing a problem with the updated drivers.

    I can start windows 7 and get to the desktop but with no Internet connection. I put my original motherboard cd and it tells me it is not compatible with this version of windows but ran windows 7 with that cd when I originally got my motherboard and it worked fine. So I can get to windows 7 desktop with no network adapter hence no Internet or can get to windows 10 choose option screen with no mouse or keyboard function. Ohhhh the evilnessof computers.

    @p3arljam,

    This sounds like the perfect time to upgrade to an SSD to me :-). Now thinking about all the options, that's REALLY what I would do! If you decide to do that, plug the SSD into SATA 0 port and leave the hard drive disconnected until you get Windows 10 installed on the SSD. Then after you get Windows 10 running nice on the SSD, reconnect the old hard drive to SATA 1 to retrieve files from it and then use it for data storage.

    This is what comes up from Asus when I punch in your model.

    Is this what you have ? If so it does not show any Windows 7 drivers at all, but a Vista driver may work fine.

    I have 3 simple questions.

    1) What was the 1st Operating system you installed on your motherboard ?

    2) Did this motherboard run Windows 7 without any problems ?

    3) Did this motherboard run Windows 10 without any problems after you upgraded it from Windows 7 ?

    Do you have any friends that could make you a Windows 10 USB flash drive or DVD and/or Kyhi's recovery USB or DVD? I can mail you DVDs of both.

    But after using Asus Global this is what come up.

    If this one is correct, then this should be the driver page, you just have to input the correct operating system and choose either 32 or 64 bit

    Well I just got off the phone with Microsoft and they told me if I have no mouse or keyboard at the blue recovery option screen I'm screwed and I can't save anything my only option is to wipe the hard drive and do a clean install. Not the news I wanted to hear.
