You will need to make some changes in the system BIOS by hitting F2 right after power on. First under the "BOOT" section of the bios, disable secure boot - this option is to protect your computer by preventing you from booting from removable drives.
Next you need to go to the Advanced section and disable fast boot, the notebook doesn't initialize USB devices in the bios at post with this option on, which makes it boot faster, but doesn't allow it to boot from these devices.
Third you may, depending on your bios version, need to change the setting for booting from UEFI, Legacy, or auto/both. If you have this selection in the bios select Auto or both.
Save settings and reboot, hit F10 right at boot to select the proper boot device. I recommend this over changing the boot order in the bios, as you want it to normally boot from the internal hard disk. Once you've completed your work its usually a good idea to change everything back as it was, but not necessary.

Thank you for contacting Samsung.
We recommend you contact Microsoft for further support with this. They made some major changes to Windows 8 in how it boots and will be able to provide the best advice on how to get this working.
Thank you for being a Samsung customer!
