I have Samsung RC730 (NP-RC730-S02PL) laptop. I bought a second disk - SSD OCZ Agility. I wanted to install Windows 7 from Samsung System Recovery Media which I got with my laptop. I also noticed that my primary HDD has hidden partition which contains some Samsung files.
Does DVD Samsung System Recovery Media copies parts of Windows 7 from this hidden partition when you install fresh Windows 7? This is why I think so:
When I installed it on my SSD I got "A disk read error occured", and when installation was going on, there was some steps on installation which was skipped: copying files, function installations, updates installation, finishing installation. Only step that wasn't skipped was "unpacking data" (or something similar).
Is this DVD broken? Can I install Windows from it only on my primary HDD which contains hidden partition with Samsung files? What can I do to install my Windows 7 on my new SSD?
While I can't boot Windows 7 from the SSD, I can boot to an old HDD to old Windows installation and browse the SSD without any errors, so the SSD is working OK.
