Hi

go to  : /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf

Find this line :  options asus_nb_wml wapf=0
Replace " 0 " with " 1 "     ( without quotations).

                                     OR

Open terminal as root and type :   echo "options asus_nb_wml wapf=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf

Reboot

Good luck & and let me know if it works

Probably yes !! lately i tried installing W7 on Asus machine that was built specifically for W8 , it gave me one hell of a struggle and wont run W7 in any way .
Asus laptops are notorious for their worse bios settings and incompatibility with operating systems !
