    Sasmung Ativ tab refresh and install windows help


    Hello,

    im helping a family friend out, who bought a used Samsung tab from ebay for Christmas, it has windows rt installed, the tab was bought over 45 days ago so theres no way of putting a claim in via paypal

    im trying to "remove everything and reinstall windows" via the settings

    however there's an administrator account on the tab and i dont know the password, so there seems to be no possible way to reset the tab to factory defaults without knowing the password

    is there anyway of resetting this?

    kind regards

    Have you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD. (Windows 8 only)
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8 (Windows 8 only)




    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
    How to make Recovery disc:

    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.

    How to make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive, or Recovery disks are the same.

    i have have no software with the tablet
    You have to make the Recovery disks yourself or order from Samsung.
