    Samsung 256GB 830 not recognized by Windows 7 Installer

    I am using a OEM SP1 of windows from the web.. not sure if this could be the reason but I figured it's worth mentioning. I just downloaded a copy from digitalriver I am going to try here soon. I might be able to jack the optical drive out of another computer in the house.
