Let's say it worked from a USB stick. What would the explanation of the original problem be in that case?

The disk I've been using was made at the factory and has all the crazy holograms on it. I've not been using a disk that I myself created. Trying to install Windows Vista Business 32-bit right now.

DVD media or reader.

Was not suggested because you have working DVD that installed before.

If Vista installs you can try running the DVD from desktop, or extracting files to desktop to run Setup as Adminstrator.

Be sure to choose Custom install to overwrite Vista partition, unless you want a dual boot configured.

If fail, then use Vista to update BIOS version, complete troubleshooting steps previously given.

A CD/DVD driver should cleaned after 10 hours of uses.

It did install vista business, however it won't help me out with installing windows 7 - says it's an incompatible version and to boot the disk etc. I've also tried updating the bios using the samsung exe file, but that will only go so far too. It keeps saying 'loading driver failed. Restart system'

Figured it out. Helpful of Windows 7 not to tell me that it was refusing to boot because the AC adaptor wasn't plugged in (this hasn't been a requirement of any previous version)!

But are they clean drivers?

I'm making a note to add "Plug in your computer" to troubleshooting steps.
