Windows 7: Cannot install Windows 7 on Samsung P210

Cannot install Windows 7 on Samsung P210

Hello all,

Having a bit of trouble with my Samsung P210 (newly purchased). It's been set up to run Windows XP, but I own a copy of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, and would like to install that. However, after selecting boot from CD/DVD, it gets as far as uploading the files, and then as soon as it starts the main installation program it just restarts. Any ideas what I can do?

Regards

Windows XP boots. I can't get into Windows 7 at all even to select what type of thing I'd like to install.

Where did you buy your Windows 7 from?

I got it on the student offer thing, through this website:

Microsoft UK Education - Home - Ultimate Steal

Though I gather it's another company that actually do the supplying on behalf of Microsoft. It was a download but I also had them send me a very legitimate looking backup disc, which I've previously used to install Windows 7 on another laptop.
