Hi @dision ,

Post your comment as a new question on ifixit.

Doing this will get your problem more attention than posting it as a comment on a 3.5 year old question.

Give details such as model number of laptop, OS installed, what the problem is and briefly what you've tried, (if anything).

I'm sure someone will help.

Cheers.

HI Ella, you can boot on penrive with two ways:

(Remeber make a bootable USB flash drive when make HitmanPro.Kikstart)

Select booting:

- At notebook power off insert your pen drive in usb port

- Power on your laptop

- Press the Boot Menu Key, usually Esc or F12 when the display starts or when you see Samsung Logo

- Select USB-HDD or The name of PenDrive

Select Bootlist:

The samsung notebook going to bios with push F2 button at power on while you see SAMSUNG LOGO.

Use the right arrow to move menu in BOOT , and select the pendrive with first boot and secondo boot the hdd

Good luck with clean a ransomware

I also have a Samsung laptop (QX412), and I'm trying to get into boot menu. F12 does nothing.

F8 displays:

Edit Boot Options for Windows 7

Partition: 2

Hard Disk: 74aba7c9

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN

Enter=Submit, Esc=Cancel

????

I can select the primary boot drive in the bios, but last time I did that (on another laptop) it messed up my HDD. So would rather just select a temp boot device than change the default.

Also, not sure which is the right usb to select...

I've tried F2, F12, DELETE and ESC but all my samsung laptop says is Samsung in the middle, Intel bottom right and please wait... bottom left.

Tried turning off and on, removing battery and power supply but can't get to the boot option, well I can't do anything apart from turn the power on and turn the power off.

The laptop, for whatever reason, needs to have the AC power adapter plugged in.

In my old SAMSUNG desktop with celeron processor, F11 key needs to be pressed for getting BOOT MENU options.

this was hard for me. i learned that my NP305V5A had to be plugged in. Then, once i pressed the power button and saw the backlight of the screen turn on, i pressed (and immediately released) ESC just one time. I realized that if I pressed it multiple times, it would flash the blue startup screen for a split second, then "Escape" back to startup.

Upon powering on the laptop, press F10

Select the option to modify the BIOS settings

Go to the Boot Options screen

Set Secure Boot to Disabled

Set BIOS mode to UEFI and Legacy or CSM and UEFI OS

Save settings and reboot

When the Samsung screen comes up again, press F10

With certain Samsung notebooks (like the 300E) holding F3 during boot will bring up the Boot from Disc option.
