    You don't need to turn off UEFI. That will render your 8.1 OS unbootable. You need to turn off Secure boot. That is it. Don't touch anything else.

    Did you turn off secure boot? Did you install vista or 7?

    And you have secure boot off? Did you check the box of "Find other windows and place it in boot menu" as well like i weote in my original post?

    I have Win7 running in dual boot with 8.1 on my laptop with secure boot off, UEFI on in the exact setup described in my OP. So if you followed that you should be good
    Maybe samsung bios is different then.

    That might be the issue then. that was in the WINNT setup dialogue you should have checked it when you installed. What you need to do is boot from the Win7 DVD and do a startup repair. That should boot Win7. Then download EasyBCD to add Win8.1 back into the boot menu. sorry for being so short, posting from my phone. Will be more detailed when I get home
