Some factory OEM-installed Samsung Laptop or so arrived at my place, and the owner wants to use Win7 instead. Initially when I get my hands on unused brand-new stuff, I first disassemble the hardware and extract the hard-drive and image it for backing it completely up in its untouched unused factory-state, so even before very first power-on attempt. Odd thing was, I did this many times over with Win7 oem machinery, and they all came already partitioned the normal Win7 OEM ways, with 100meg sys partition and large C/Winblows partition and some with addtl recovery partition. This Win8 machinery came with no visible partition to my external computer at all, no partition boundaries, no file system visible and recognizable, so I needed to back it up with forensic sector-wise copy (e.g. your usual tools can probably deal with it, i used o&o-software image in its various forensic modes). So anyways, this Win8 machine is now booted up and the owner really hates it, so the option is acquire some Win7 OEM license and sticker via epay or similar means and go for that solution. Does the community need anything off this Win8 Samsung OEM factory installation, or the raw forensic image or anything? Maybe I can provide some files or stuff that would be of interest. Or maybe people have already provided Samsung related Win8 stuff. Its Samsung Win8-64bit standard, so no professional or fancy stuff I guess. Maybe even any ways of getting refund from OEM manufacturer for unused Win8 license? We all hate this crap enormously. Any more advice? Regards.
