Not all brands/models have the same BIOS options. These instructions are specific to certain Samsung laptops. That should have been stated in your explanation. It also should have been posted in the "how-to" section.

Changing the BIOS configuration has nothing to do with the operating system. It is neither about XP or Windows 8.
