    Backing up the operating system


    Hello everyone, just purchased a SAMSUNG Series 3 NP3530EC laptop running Windows 8. It came without a recovery disc. The laptops that I had in the past allowed you to make a copy of the operating system to DVDs. I can not work out how to do this with the Samsung.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    If the laptop came with win 8 installed then you will be able to use any win 8 installation disk to reinstall the OS. Reason being is the key is already embedded in the bios. Good luck with your purchase.

    BTW as did "theog" I would like to "Welcome you to the Eight Forums." . . .
