Hello everyone,

I have had no luck trying to boot from either a flash drive, or the disk drive. I am able to see the USB, and disk drive in the system BIOS, and when I press F10 during boot up. In BIOS settings, it does not matter what the boot order is, the HDD will always load first. I have tried a few different BIOS settings to try and solve the problem, before I decided to post. I have disabled fast bios mode, and set secured boot to disbled.  I have also set the OS mode selection to UEFI and Legacy OS. The bootable USB has no problems with other systems. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium X64. The Laptop is a Samsung NP365E5C-S05US. If anyone can offer some suggestions to help resolve this issue, I would really appreciat it.

Thank you for your time.

Hello!

I found the following post off another forum regarding a similar topic:

 

I had this problem too! Here is what solved it for me: I hit F12 on the initial screen. When the menu came up asking me which device I wanted to boot from, I waited until I actually heard my BD-ROM spin up (it took about 30 s), then I selected my BD-ROM (which was listed with full details "Pioneer BD-ROM..." in the list) and hit enter. Then it worked.

Hope this helps someone else who has this problem.

 


Aside from the above post I found, the only thing(s) I can think of to mention that might be worth trying are 1) remove the cmos battery to try and reset, or 2) flash/update the bios.

Please have patience for a few days and perhaps someone with more knowledge and experience can further assist you if my suggestion(s) don't help.


Good luck!  :wave:

Hello,

I am having some difficulty updating the BIOS. After contacting Samsung, I was told that there are no BIOS updates available at this time.
