Samsung NP365E5C-S05US Laptop Win 8 Install issues
I had a Win 8 Pro dvd already and figured I pop it in and would be a pieces of cake. Not so.
So I wanted to go with Win 7, thinking I might have an unused Win 7 laying around somewhere and be done with it. Not so again.
At one time it showed three partitions on the wiped drive. The first two with 0 sizes and one with 427gb not formatted. In a moment of inspiration I blew them away during the Win 7 path of error.
So then I got the right Win 8version mentioned earlier in the Samsung Sales thread. Not Pro, regular Win 8 x64. Hash and MD5 checked out.
Now with Win 8 I keep getting past Install Now and it wants a Activation Code.
My Bios is set to Secure Boot. The Boot order has the DVD with the UEFI prefix first.
What should the Bios settings be? What AMD driver does Win 8 need to see the drive. My partitions are all gone, Win 8 sees nothing at all.
