Now let’s configure the laptop BIOS to boot from a USB flash drive so that you can install Windows 7 or Windows8 in the future, because The bios of the Samsung NP300E5A laptop supports UEFI and it will not be ruled out that you already have Windows 8 preinstalled.
By the way, by analogy with the bios input, you can use the recovery mode, that is, restoring the OS to its original state, in other words, reinstalling Windows, I do not use disks, flash drives.
To do this, press the key “F4″when the Samsung logo appears.
P.S.:If you have not deleted the partition with the windows installation image or replaced the hard drive before, then everything will be in order.
After a window appears and follow the instructions.
And so for starters we need to go into the BIOS.
To do this, press the key “F2″when the Samsung logo appears.
If you did everything right, then we see the following. BIOS itself.
Here we see brief characteristics of the laptop, but we are not interested.
Go to the tab “Advanced”, and do the same as shown in the photo.
That is, here we disable download support “UEFI” and turn on the mode “Legacy”, which allows you to boot from a USB flash drive or drive.
P.S.: Here we can switch the hard drive mode “AHCI” ,what is it for? To check the surface of the hard drive for the presence of broken clusters. Anyone interested can download the program.
After you have done what is written above, then go to the tab “BOOT”.
In fact, we are not specifically interested in anything here except as an option “Boot device priority”.
We go into the option “Boot device priority”. We see.
All connected devices from which we can launch. In this example, I put my flash drive in the primary boot.
The boot priority distribution is assigned with the keys F5 (lower) and F6 (increase).
Here we’ve chosen what we’ll load, put up and now we will need to save the settings.
To do this, press the F10 key, a window will appear on the laptop display.
Choose “Yes” and press the key “Enter”
That’s the whole BIOS setup for the Samsung NP300E5A laptop to boot from a USB flash drive or drive.
