On the entire hard drive you are speaking about - Do you have any data at all that you want to keep?

Or is it ok that you lose everything on it and that is no problem?

Hi glennplant, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

If you find where the "setup log files" were saved, they would help explain this error.

Others have experienced difficulty with ACPI when installing 7. Here is a link to a Samsung thread:

Samsung Netbook Community: Forums / Windows 7 / ACPI error on Install

Hope this is helpful?
