HI, technically, this Chromebook COULD run windows, but Samsung has tweaked the bios so that you can't install anything else. However, the specifications are right. Here is what you would need to do:

1. Hack your BIOS settings. This is incredibly difficult to do. You have to open your Chromebook, meaning you have to remove the 12 screws in the bottom and wrap some electrical tape around the BIOS to stop the protection activity, thus allowing you to hack into your BIOS settings. After you have done that, you can remove boot loader settings. To do this, hit F4 and change the sequence.

2. Flash new BIOS. This also needs to be done carefully to avoid damaging the Chromebook.

3. After hacking the BIOS settings and flashing new BIOS settings, you can install Windows 8. You will need to have the Windows 8 Operating System stored on a flash drive. You would not be able to use an external CD-Rom drive since Chromebooks do not come equipped with a CD drive. After this, all you need to do is follow the installation instructions.

As you can see, it would be difficult, and would require you to open up the device. However, if you're up to it, then feel free to go ahead!

You could always do this . It's a lot easier, and safer for the system. Plus, depending on the type of cpu your system has, it might not even be able to run windows at all (not to discourage you)!

This information is mostly inaccurate. The only version of Windows 8 that it could run is RT which is designed for ARM based processors. Also the XE303C12 uses Uboot, not BIOS. ARM processors cannot run x86 or x64 compiled programs so NONE of your regular Windows or even Linux programs will run. You could run them in emulation but it is inefficient. Check out ArchWiki and wikipedia for more information.
