Just my note on the move from 8 to 7.

Before you go to 7 and dive into a very trying experience of drivers, apps and getting it all working again, TRY CLASSIC SHELL. Now that we have CLASSIC SHELL, which is free we haven't installed Windows 7 since. Quite a savings too.

Put the BIOS back to defaults so Windows 8 can work again.

Let's let Samsung answer this support issue now. Unlocking this one and locking the others.
