    I would first make Windows 8 recovery disks first, so that you can always go back to it if you need to sell it etc.

    Then you need to get it to boot from USB. I think you tap the Esc key as soon as you turn it on on a Samsung, then select USB from the boot menu. Get it to format the hard drive and then install to it.

    Can I ask why you want to uninstall Windows 8 and re-install Windows 7. Windows 8 is far more performant than Windows 7!
