yes you can provided that the HDD is not damaged ....

To use a Pendrive You will need a 4GB+ USB flash drive for this procedure. then create your bootable USB Disk for the windows Or a windows 8 DVD disk

Then Follow below:

Shut down the computer and reboot into the BIOS by pressing F2 repeatedly immediately after pressing the Power button. Under the "Advanced" tab, set Fast BIOS Mode to Disabled. Under the "Boot" tab, set Secure Boot to Disabled, then OS Mode Selection to CSM OS. Then select "Boot Device Priority" and move USB HDD to the top. and Save your settings then restart

The computer should restart and boot from your USB drive into the Windows installation. Go through the prompts and choose the custom installation option and when it asks where you want to install Windows, click "Drive options (advanced)" and delete all the partitions on the drive and create your desire

The installation will go through and then restart, remove the USB Drive and reinsert it when the Win Logo appeared (If you don't remove the USB disk, you will end up at the initial installation prompt again)

Once the installation is finished you can go to Samsung site and search your ur lap model missing drivers and download them.

TIPs:

reboot into the BIOS and set Fast BIOS Mode back to Enabled (but keep Secure Boot disabled and the OS Mode as CSM OS) and you're done!

The Reason I remove the SSD

bec it has this AHCI Error.

It all started when i had to went to Bios and Change AHCI Mode to Enable, now it has this error I Cant Stop.

All I need is Set the Bios Back,

But I cant, I have set Fast Boot enabled. I have tried 10,000 times f2 or f4.. holding them, before powering on.

Please Help.

by

try pressing repeatedly the F2 whiles powering on. do not pres and hold. and i strongly advice you should try that with external usb keyboard if you are still having problem

by

The "all boot options tried Press F4" problem is terminal and you need to replace your motherboard and possible the power regulator, making it nearly worthless.

If your laptop is fairly good cosmetic shape I will buy it for parts. I pay anywhere from $10 to $30 for them plus shipping.

Send photos of all sides of the laptop and the model number and I will give you a price on it.

It stuck on Samsung logo and also give other error

Recovery

You Pc-Device needs to repaired

The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.

File: EFI-MICROSOFT-BOOT-BCD

Error code: 0xc0000185

It comes up with blue screen...

Once I restart and try to get F4 it just stay stuck on Samsung logo. I can only access F2 BIOS setting.

If anyone can give me right advice or help would be so great and I will be really thankful to you guys.

And what if hard drive issue ? Can I get my data back up somehow ? I had windows 8 when I bought it. I have back up in my external drive for that setup.

I watched some online videos but I can't get into additional options or command prompt to fix this issue.

I need help asap.

Thanks,

Kirtan
