The hdd is damaged, how do I install a new windows?
As I said, lost everything on the original hdd, so i bought a new disk to replace it, but i cannot figure out how to install windows!!
If anyone could help it would be great!!
Hey mate, to install windows on a new HDD, you'll need a windows boot disk. If you already have one, skip what I'm about to say. To obtain one you'll need to go out and buy one from a shop (if you are after windows 7, I'm sorry but its no longer obtainable due to windows 8 being released).
After obtaining a copy of windows, follow these instructions;

This guide covers the install of windows 7 (scroll down to clean install):
Hope this helps you out.
Hi, I'm having the same problem. The recovery HDD /Partition has "died".
There is no way to get it running again.
I've tried to make a Windows 7 bootable USB stick. it works but when setup asks your language and Keyboard language, after pressing enter the laptop does nothing after "installing win 7" The mouse works so it doesn't hangs. It just simply doesn't install further from my USB stick. I've even removed the usb stick after 30 min and there is not even an error like: "Can't find file, or put in the cd/dvd" It just does noting and idle's.
I got the samsung np540u3c Ultrabook.
I know there is drivers for the videocard and wifi/lan on some sites for to work on windows 7 on this samsung np540u3c but then I need to install windows 7 first.
Any tips for me?
