Default Need to flash Ativ S missing drivers?

Hi all.

I started experiencing weird problems with my Ativ S, so I thought I do a hard reset and start clean. I got stuck to a known issue with the Ativ and GDR3, where after hard reset the apps wont instal from the store. The only solution I saw was to flash the device. I have the GDR2 rom so I thought no problem, however I cant get the drivers to instal on the download mode so I could start the flash process.

I have tried to instal 2 different drivers: SamsungUSBDriver.msi and I8750_Qualcomm_USB_composite_driver_HK11-VB717-38.zip Neither of these (that I found, if they are the correct packages) have worked so that the Ativ is recognized correctly in the download mode and I could start flash. When Ativ is connected in the download mode, its only seen as USB DOWNLOADER with exclamation point at device manager.

Im running 64bit Windows 8.1 Pro system.

Any suggestions are welcomed! Thanks!

And installing SamsungUSBDriver.msi results in an error pictured here. Although next time trying to instal the driver is present as it gives an repair option.

Ok so I found this, probably somthing that could be expected: 2. Install Driver on your PC (i had problems with win 8.1 X64, win7 X64 installation fine)

So I would need a Win7 system, no idea where I would have one... Other suggestions for this?

Ok problem solved by installing Windows 7 to a empty drive just for this flashing. Luckily I didnt have to instal any updates, just the os and the usb driver.
