So let's start with these Points. 

 OS specification:

Operating System requirements are the most important. We need a correect operating system to install drivers and Do ADB sideload. 
You can use From Windows XP to Windows 8.1. You can't use windows 10 because this OS is totally new and no drivers have released yet from Asus to Install on it. 

 Installing Proper ADB and Fastboot Drivers:

Well, we need ADB and Fastboot driver. I have something special for you guys. I have the setup From XDA Developer that will automatically install the Requirement drivers on your system.

 Then a command window will pop up. Now we need to check whether our phone properly connected to PC and ready to flash or not. 

so type the following command in the command window. = "adb devices". After that, you can your phone serial number connected to it. If you can see the serial number then yo are ready to go.

Now type this command = adb sideload (EG: adb sideload
