    You can't: The disc would have to come from samsung as it contains special files that specific laptop needs. Also Microsort would refure you to samsung for any support. They do not support Oem installs.

    Just get a copy from anybody. It the key not the disc. The discs are the same. You paied for the key.

    And stop loosing the discs that come with you systems :)

    Maybe if you call Samsung and tell them you stepped on the disk and it broke they would ship you a new one just for shippig cost
