I purchased the NP700Z7C-S01US just a few days ago. With it I also got a 512GB Crucial SSD, as the hard drive slows the machine down a little bit. When I got the laptop, I noticed that there was a disc labeled SAMSUNG RECOVERY MEDIA so I didn't even think about creating any sort of disc using the Samsung Recovery Solution software. I went ahead and installed the SSD on to my new laptop and eventually found out that the disc did not contain anything other than a windows 7 install. I am a little frustrated about this because I want to restore to the factory settings which has a bunch of things including microsoft office and a norton antivirus subscription etc. I realise that I can pop the original HDD back into the laptop and create the restore DVD, but I do not want to do this as it was a pain to open up the laptop and I ended up scratching the edges of it. I connected the HDD to my desktop, and the desktop sees the drive just fine, but I cannot boot from it. Is there anything I can do to restore to the factory settings WITHOUT creating a DVD using samsung recovery solution on the original hard disk? Thanks
