Hi there, somebody install windows 8 pro and is not working properly. I want to restore my PC to windows 8, but its asking me to insert recovery media and I don't know what it is


You can download an ISO of your original OS from Microsoft and using your COA install it as a new install. Don't forget to install ALL drivers from the Samsung web site or it won;t work properly.

How to install my laptop missing drivers for windows 8?


1) In the bottom right of the computer screen in the Desktop view of Windows 8, you should see a small flag, which is called the "action center icon". Click it to open the action center.
2) If the action center finds drivers are missing from your system, it will show you which ones under the "Maintenance" section. For information, click the "View message details" button.
3) For each of the missing drivers, click the direct download link to start the process.
4) Run the downloaded file
5) Simply proceed with the installation as directed and your drivers will be installed.

When copying Windows Vista install dvd to usb, error message exit: Can`t copy install.wim (CRC) data error.


Hello,
Make sure your install DVD is not scratched or full of finger prints. If you have another computer try using it to copy the DVD to USB. Some dvd players read dvd's better then others. If you need to, it is not illegal to download the software off the internet as long as you use the product key that came with your copy of the software when you install it. You could download the ISO from a torrent site and extract it to USB if you needed, with programs like MagicISO.

Code 80070246 how do i fix


To resolve this problem, replace the corrupted GlobalInstallOrder.xml file on the system with the same file from the Windows Vista installation media. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Obtain the WIM filter driver from the Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK). To download and install the Windows AIK, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c7d4bc6d-15f3-4284-9123-679830d629f2&DisplayLang=en (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c7d4bc6d-15f3-4284-9123-679830d629f2&DisplayLang=en)
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft Windows AIK, right-click Windows PE Tools Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password, type the password. If you are prompted to continue, click Continue.
  3. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER. MD c:\MountThis command creates a folder that is named Mount.
  4. Put the Windows Vista installation media in the CD or DVD drive.
  5. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: Imagex /mount DVDDriveLetter\sources\install.wim 1 \mount
  6. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: CD\mount\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_07289f4cca5f6990This command moves to the source folder
  7. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: xcopy GlobalInstallOrder.xml %windir%\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_07289f4cca5f6990This command copies the GlobalInstallOrder.xml file to the destination folder.

How To Make Vista Bootable DVD with WIM Downloaded Files If you have purchased Windows Vista online and taken the delivery of the latest operating system via web download from Windows Marketplace, you would ends up with a few downloads with .wim and .exe file extensions. Rather than paying additional shipping and handling charges, you can burn or create a bootable ISO DVD image from downloaded Vista files with the following trick, where the .iso image can subsequently write to a DVD. The DVD created will be the typical 32-bit Windows Vista DVD that available in retail channel, and can be used to clean install.

How to make a bootable Windows Vista ISO DVD media

1. Put all 3 downloaded files (namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe) in the same folder (for this tutorial, let’s assume the files are put on C:\ else you need to modify the path accordingly).
2. Run the X13-49120.exe executable. Windows Vista Setup Preparation will create a new folder “Vista” inside the folder and will populate the folder with all necessary Vista setup files which takes up about 2.52 GB disk space.
3. Exit from the Install Windows screen.
4. Download CDimage 2.52
5. Extract CDimage from CDimage.zip to the C:\ root directory.
6. Open a command prompt shell, and run the following command:

cdimage.exe -lVISTA_EN_DVD -m -u2 -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Vista\ C:\Vistax86.iso

Bootable Windows Vista x86 DVD ISO image in UDF format will be created as vistax86.iso in C:\ or any folder you specified above.
7. Burn the newly create ISO with a CD/DVD burning software such as Nero or Alcohol 120%. Try to burn at low speed (i.e. 4X) and turn on verification to ensure that the DVD creation is fine.

Create a Windows Vista ISO image and DVD with Oscdimg

Another possible way to create a bootable Vista ISO and DVD is by using Oscdimg CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility, available via WinPE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) via Business Desktop Deployment 2007 or Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK)

1. Complete step 1 - 3 as above.
2. In the command prompt window, run the following command:

oscdimg -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lVISTA_EN_DVD C:\Vista\ C:\VistaDVD.iso

A VistaDVD.iso UDF DVD image will be created and can be used to boot the computer from DVD to install Vista.
3. Burn the ISO image file by using last step above.
