By default, your laptop will be named "MSI" on your local network.
However, you can change this name here or later in Windows 8 system properties.
In our case, we changed the color to blue and we indicated "InformatiWeb-pc" as the name for our laptop.
If you wish, you can now connect your laptop to a wireless network (Wifi).
To do this, select your Wifi network from the list, then click on "Connect".
Otherwise, click the "Connect to a wireless network later" link at the bottom of the screen.
If you have chosen to connect to a wireless network, you will need to enter its password (also known as "Wifi key" or "passphrase").

There you go, your MSI laptop is like new. The installation of Windows 8, its drivers and third-party software that had been pre-installed by MSI have been restored.
As you can see, the hard disk has been repartitioned as it was in the factory state with an "OS_Install" partition where Windows 8 is installed and a "DATA" partition in which you can store your personal data without that these are not deleted during the restoration (IF you use the 2nd option of Recovery).
