    There should be a recovery partition from most OEM companies. (see screenshot) they may be hidden partitions and might not be seen from "my computer" you can check using the management console. "right click on my computer, choose manage, the choose disk management". Now I do not know how much you do or do not know so please take no offence to my posting instructions, plus they may help others. If there is none or it is truly damaged then contact the manufacturer and request a dvd, don't take no for an answer. They will usually send them at a nominal cost or free.

    further to your last post i've followed your instructions re disk management and found a section in disc 0 basic that says 20.00gb healthy ( recovery partition). can you please tell me how to access this partition to reinstall the o/s ?

    para999 I would suggest having a look here as they pretty much walk you through getting the repair partition on a samsung to boot.

    How do I access Windows 8 Recovery partition and how to recover it to factory image? - Super User

    Hi Para all you need to do is reboot the computer holding down the F4 button when the laptop starts up. This will give you the recovery solution. Select the very earliest date and the recovery will go back to Factory state. Leave the rest to who ever purchases it after you, they might want what you have taken off.
