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:

Hope this is helpful?

W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?
OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
