I have read all the diverse experiences in this thread to date. I am having many and different issues ( one time I almost reached the point of authenticating my windows 16 digit product key ) trying to fresh install win 7 pro to a Samsung Evo SSD in an Acer Ferrari One 200. Because of the variety of issues / different points I am locked up or frozen out … I get I have given up with the SSD for the time being ( If I achieve success with an IDE drive I will try and clone that to the SSD) Meanwhile I think this is just Samsung building products for Windows and Intel but AMD ( The processor in the Ferrari) being left out of the loop. In other words its politics !!!!
