Advice: Use a PC without any drivers or software from other Android devices, this may causes conflicts with the drivers in the ADB.

how can i check this one from my PC?

just to confirm this, after the samsung logo appears, dont release the vol up and home button and wait to appear the android robot out of the box, then press the menu button...right?

Something like this:

FOTA = Firmware(update) Over The Air

Only the Stock Rom allows firmware upgrades over the air (neither ClockWorkMod = CWM, nor RZ Recovery = RZR)
