Samsung np365e5c Bios is password locked - Page 6

Update.

I got it to boot from the cd drive again. I let it sit for 20 minutes and it finally came up. I may try another reinstall.

I actually got it to work by disabled achi.

Anyway I successfully got it to Install 8.1 Windows and now it WILL boot from the hard drive into the desktop.

Unfortunately I am back where I started 3 days ago because my original goal was to install windows 7. Won't be happening now.

The problem with that is I have to convert the drive to MBR which the bios on my laptop isn't compatible with apparently.

There hasn't been a computer sold in the last ten years or so (Windows NT started MBR formatting) that won't boot of of an MBR partition.

I notice that the model number ends in a "c". May indicate it's made for use in a non-US region, then your North American Windows will install, but not boot.
Just a thought.........

I put Windows 7 on it as a GPT.

It simply won't boot when WIndows 7 is installed. It won't do it. Windows 8 is fine. Win 7 Heck no.

try to install it as mbr it may take the laptop a minute to come up but it
should.

oh wow I just learned something new are you trying to instal the 32 or 64bit version
of win 7?

when you get online james shoot me a pm I've figured all this mess out and how to make
win 7 work and man its a long pain in the butt process but i found pages to guide you through it.

I've found the same page you're talking about. It doesn't work for me.

I have no problem getting the windows 7 disk to install. The problem is, the bios refuses to boot a HD with windows 7 on it. I've tried all settings.

install abd coot win 7 just fine heck maybe even older then that.
