    Thank you so much. I have been on the phone for HOURS with Samsung & hopefully my BIOS settings were the issue an I hope they're right now. Am trying to boot up now. Thanks again & we'll see.

    Ugh!!! Was on phone all day w/ Samsung adjusting BIOS and it STILL won't load/recover. I don't have the $ to replace & am just ready to cry.

    Here are my BIOS changes/settings:

    ADVANCED tab-> fast bios mode DISABLED.

    BOOT tab-> secure boot DISABLED

    OS mode selection - UEFI & CSM OS

    PXW OPROM- DISABLED
    (Someone suggested this should be at LEGACY?)

    I also set BOOT PRIORITY ORDER and put SATA CD to no. 1

    I don't know what any of this means, but it's where I am now.

    PXE usually involves booting a computer from a read-only-memory or programmable read-only-memory chip, or from a network.

    Maybe try a different setting for that and see if it makes any difference. These oem firmware implementations are something of a black art.

    If you are still having an issue, are you able to get the recovery media to boot on a different machine?

    Try booting the DVD on another computer. It's possible it's defective. Wouldn't be the first time a new DVD was bad.

    Well...it looks like I'm off to Craigslist to find someone who can get my laptop running for me. I'm going to try a couple of more times playing with the BIOS settings...just for giggles.
