Reinstalling Windows® Operating System in the Samsung® R530
How do you reinstall the Windows Operating System in the Samsung R530?
Windows Operating Systems are designed to be light on the system resources and easy to use. Windows comes preloaded on almost all the new systems, including the Samsung R530, as they can be used and operated by even entry-level users. The Samsung R530 comes with a genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Operating System. There are circumstances where reinstalling the Operating System on the Samsung R530 becomes necessary. Some of the common issues that can lead to the reinstallation of the Windows Operating System are malware attacks that damage or corrupt the system, accidental removal of system files and a faulty system susceptible to system crashes. In certain cases, hardware faults can also result in system failure which might require Operating System reinstallation. Your new Operating System can be installed using a CD or DVD or from a flash drive.
The following are some guidelines to reinstall Windows on the Samsung R530:
- Run virus scan
- File backup
- Power supply
Run virus scan
All malware need to be removed from your Samsung R530 before reinstalling any version of the Windows Operating System. This includes checking all the partitions of the hard drive of your system. Malware removal can be done either by formatting the hard disk partition or running a virus scan on the hard disk. Some viruses might interrupt the reinstallation process in the middle, thereby corrupting the Operating System.
Before starting with the installation process you have to ensure that every file and folder present in ‘My Documents’, ‘My Favorites’, ‘My Pictures’, on the desktop which might be needed later on, should have a back up. This can be done by copying it on separate media such as CDs, DVDs or flash drives. For the installed applications, take a backup of the setup file for the application before reinstalling.
The reinstallation procedure of Windows can be time consuming, depending on the version of the Operating System being installed. The Samsung R530 users need to make sure that an adequate amount of power is always available during the process. Interrupting the reinstallation process midway can have disastrous effects on the system, by making the Windows Operating System corrupt and leaving your Samsung R530 inoperable.
