Samsung NP355E5C-A01AU Laptop Won't Boot From Recovery Partition

Sep 9, 2013

I swapped out a HDD in a samsung NP355E5C-A01AU laptop which i cloned all the recovery partitions from the original to the new HDD. Its a windows 8 partition and everything seems to be there but the laptop wont boot from it at all, it just goes into bios. I did get it to try and read from the recovery partition but get a "MBR error 1" when it tries to boot from it. I used aronis disk director 11 to do the cloning if that works. Also the original HDD was a GPT partition and thats wat i have formatted the drive as. Ive done some reading and acronis can be difficult when cloning recovery partitions and it will give u this MBR error.

System Recovery Not Working On Samsung Laptop

Aug 11, 2014

I have a client's laptop which is a Samsung Model NP350V5C-A01us and I am trying to recovery the OS or more than likely do a clean install.

Customer reloaded BIOS to factory default prior to bringing it to me. Client even tried the recovery disk that came with the laptop.

This is what both the client and I are getting: see attached image.

All the options that show in the image when pressed leads back to the same Recovery screen.

I cannot get the DVD to boot from but the Disk is running. So not sure if the laser is of the DVD is not working.

Maintenance :: Samsung NP550P5C Laptop - Recovery Not Working

Mar 9, 2014

I've got a Samsung NP550P5C laptop with the following specs :

-6 GB RAM @ 1600 MHz
-1 TB HDD @ 5400 rpm
-2 GB nVidia GT650M with Optimus
-Windows 8 Single Language 64-bit

It came with Recovery partitions. Now using the Samsung Recovery application I had copied my recovery files to another external HDD alongwith a backup of C drive. Now all these are in some weird extensions. I refreshed my PC and then the problems began. The problems were :

-No Fn key working
-Samsung recovery did not recognize factory condition recovery point,i.e,Factory reset option was gone.
-The backup on external HDD was showing up on Samsung Recovery, but after clicking on it, it would go on a restart and recovery never happens.

Setup Installation :: Remove Win7 From Duel Boot Sys Without Sys Recovery Partition?

Aug 31, 2013

I had a computer with windows 7 home premium x64. A while ago I decided that I wanted to up grade to windows 8 and so I partitioned my os drive and installed (OEM) windows 8 Pro on the new partition. During the set up I was able to set up a duel boot system with windows 8 and windows 7. When I look at the drive structure I noticed that there isn't a system recovery partition for windows 7 or windows 8.

I would like to generate a system recovery partition for windows 8 and remove windows 7 but I am not sure how to go about doing this.

Laptop Can't Boot Stuck In Automatic Recovery And Can't Repair

Sep 2, 2014


Computer was running slow so I did a reset of windows. It worked but the problem still existed. My computer froze so I turned my laptop off and back on only to find it stuck in that automatic repair loop. I tried system restore, no luck. I made that bootable usb for repairing and that didn't work either. Straight repair won't work either. I have tried every option and am completely lost as to how to proceed. I need the files off the hard drive but don't have a way to connect it to anything to be able to access the files.

Cannot Boot Toshiba Laptop Windows 8.1 / Created Duplicate EFI Partition

Dec 25, 2013

I can not boot my Toshiba laptop Windows 8.1 computer after I was attempting to resize partitions. I got in over my head. Now I'm stuck and cannot boot.

I believe the problem is I somehow created a second copy of my EFI partition. Now I have two "system" partitions of the same size.

Cannot boot, but got a command prompt. Ran "bcdedit" and got:

"The boot configuration data store could not be opened.The requested system device cannot be identified due to multiple indistinguishable devices potentially matching the identification criteria."

Other things I uncovered:

Diskpart> list partition
Partition 1 System
Partition 2 System
Partition 3 Reserved
Partition 4 Primary
Partition 5 Recovery
Partition 6 Recovery

(note both partitons 1 & 2 say "System" for type.)

Diskpart> Select Partition 1detail partition * Volume 2 System NTFS Partition 352 MB Healthy Hidden
Diskpart> Select Partition 2detail partition * Volume 3 FAT32 Partition 352 MB Healthy Hidden

I conclude that Partition 1 equates to Volume 2, Partition 2 to Volume 3. However there is no longer a "System" label on Part 2/Vol 3 once drilled down to details. Also its FAT32.

I am hoping/praying that I could "delete" one of the duplicate partitions. But scared to make any such move. Not sure where to go from here.

Setup Installation :: Replace Recovery Partition In Recovery Drive?

Jun 20, 2014

If you have a recovery drive - that includes the recovery partition - made on one computer, but have a toshiba laptop with a bad drive (but the recovery partition is ok), can you replace/copy the partition on the recovery drive with the recovery partition from the bad laptop HD?

My friend's laptop would not boot, and would not factory recover, reset, or refresh. I tried to clone the hard drive before I started messing with the disc. It would not clone, but I was able to copy the recovery partition to a USB drive.

He never make recovery discs, so could not re-install, but I can borrow the recovery drive that my aunt made for her laptop.

Samsung NP550P5C - How To Create Windows 8 Recovery Disc

Dec 26, 2012

This is for a Samsung NP550P5C... having typed it into Google, the options appear a little confusing with the best option being how to make recovery discs for an HP laptop (presumably using HP's built in wizard), requiring 4 DVD's. Other suggestions seem to tell you how to make a "Repair" disc for Windows 8 with one readers comments of.....

" Windows 8 recovery Disk is used to reset your PC - it is supposed to reload the operating system and restore factory default settings. You need a USB flash drive 16GB or larger. I haven't found yet a way to create Windows 8 recovery CD/DVD, which can be used to reinstall the operating system."

It's not even clear how to do it on a Flash Drive though I would prefer using discs...

Setup Installation :: Samsung Recovery Error - Maintain User Data Option

Mar 28, 2014

So I had this recovery error that said my winload.efi was missing so I ran the recovery from boot up and decided to recover. I read that this will delete the files from C: so I turned on the "Maintain User Data" option and selected all including the local disk c from advanced selection. But when the process was finished, my laptop was empty and no data was restored. What happened ? did I just misunderstand how it works and now it's gone ? or is it just somewhere I can't find ?

Sep 4, 2014

I have bought a laptop while ago from Samsung that came with windows 8.

When accessing the hard disk in windows installation i deleted all Partitions on HD. Inclusive those from factory.

When i try to install windows now , he''s asking for drivers and he will not continue without. I tried to download the sata hd drivers, wich he finds, but it still keeps screaming for drivers. Did i delete the wrong map? is it possible to recover this?

Samsung Series 9 Slow Boot After Crash

Aug 25, 2014

I have a Samsung NP9000 model NP900X4C-A05AU. It regularly crashes due to full memory. It has 8G of RAM, running Windows 8.1. It's done this since day 1 - I managed to remove some Samsung bloatware that mitigated the problem somewhat, i.e. from once a day to three times a week. Mostly, just before it happens I get the "close some programs or lose some data" message, and I can possibly kill something (chrome usually) to free some memory so I can reboot cleanly. Usually at this point, the "Modified" section of the Task Manager Memory usage tab is quite big. Reboot and it's good for another couple of days.

Sometimes the "close some programs" message is too late... I get the message and almost immediately Windows crashes and reboots. Up until last week, this didn't cause any issues after the reboot. But last week, it did this, gave me the message and immediately crashed. It took about 1 hour for it to reboot, sitting at the "please wait" dots. I was in the process of making a recovery USB to boot from when it finally came to life. Everything seemed ok, was able to start things up, and carried on as usual. Couple of days later, get the "close some programs" message, and am able to reboot. But the laptop takes 5 to 10 minutes to reboot. Up until I had this issue, a reboot would take 5 to 10 seconds (to get to the login prompt). Even a reboot after just rebooting takes 5 to 10 minutes. I've run scans on my SSD, it says everything is ok. Every reboot now takes 5 to 10 minutes.

Maintenance :: Samsung Laptop Windows 8 Not Starting After System Restore

Mar 5, 2014

I was on my samsung laptop last night, and I found a folder called "Searches>Indexed locations". I saw it was taking up some space so i went through some of the files seeing that some were Type:Shortcuts. So I deleted them to free up a bit of space thinking "it's only a shortcut, can't harm it". Now some icons are missing from my windows 8 start screen and some programs have become inoperable because of missing files. I tried System restore to bring some of it back, it was going ok, then when it tried to restart, showed the samsung logo, then just blackscreened for 4+ hours. It was on , but blank. Haven't been using the laptop long so I don't really know the specs on it.

It came with no DvD/CD for me to use to format the laptop and I cant get it on to boot it up right for me to format it to begin with.

I atleast do know the graphics card was an AMD Radeon HD 7460

Can't seem to access Bios either.

One thing I forgot to mention which might have something to do with it, is I was using a custom windows 8 theme, because microsoft, being as stingy as they are, from what i assume does not enable you to have your own theme, so I had something called the "ribbon disabler and UXTheme Cracker" to use a custom windows 8 theme.

Setup Installation :: 30 Second Boot Delay With New 250GB Samsung SSD

Jan 26, 2014

I replaced a Kingston 128GB SSD with a Samsung EVO 250GB SSD. Cloned Kingston SSD to new Samsung SSD using Acronis True Image.

Now, when I boot, it sits there for 30 seconds flashing the hard drive light blinking then proceeds to boot normally. All BIOS settings are default.

Hardware details in Specs.

Booting from the 128GB SSD was fine, no obvious delays.

What might be causing this? Could the new SSD be defective?

Setup Installation :: Boot Order On Samsung 350V5C-A08

Dec 30, 2012

I have just replaced my broken HP DV5 laptop (windows7) with a new Samsung NP350V5C-A08 with window 8 already installed. I am having major problems working out how to change the boot order.

On my HP the boot order was:
a) Optical disc drive.
b) Usb external hard drive.
c) Internal hard drive.

This configuration allowed firstly to upload Ubuntu 12.10 from a disc in the optical drive onto the external drive, this allowed me to run Ubuntu from an external hard drive, this saved me from having to partition the internal hard drive and I believe invalidating the guarantee.

With my new Samsung I cannot get to list the boot options in the bios (the only option is the internal Hitachi drive). How I can run Ubuntu like I did with my HP laptop.

Setup Installation :: Samsung Laptop Won't Start After Windows 8 Image Recover

Sep 13, 2013

I have two laptops, both Samsung, one mine and one my sisters. My one is Windows 8 and her one is a slightly older model so Windows 7. Now both are are very similar in spec, being 4GB and Intel Pentium 2.3GHz models. She recently asked me if i could sort out her laptop with Windows 8, so I said yep should be no problem.

I went and bought a Windows 8 Pro 64bit and was at first going to just do a plain install. But then had a bright idea and thought why not do an image of mine and recover it to hers, and then when started up just enter the key of the new one. that way she gets a full original Samsung install along with all the apps and everything.

At first I tried the samsung built in Recovery software but had no luck as it was just a complete nightmare. Not booting the USB I put it on for the first few times, then eventually after changing the BIOS setting to UEFI and formatting her Disk to GPT it started but then said no image found. In end I tried the old way by using the Windows built in File Recovery Image tool which made me a repair disc and 3 discs for the image itself.

This booted first go and went all way through the recovery, and then did the usual "restarting in X seconds ..." But after it rebooted to my horror the Samsung Logo screen appears and then after that it just stays blank.

It does every few seconds momentarily flicker on the screen but then just goes bank again. I cant even get into the BIOS anymore or boot from anything.
