Re: Cannot install Samsung Magician 4.0 for SSD on W520

2013-03-20, 12:55 PM

I have had some other strange behaviors on my computer besides being unable to install Magician. Now I am in between two projects so I have made some maintenance on my gear and for some reason I have now been able to install the little **bleep**! This is what I have made:


* Turned of Hyper-V (using Windows 8)

* Downloaded all latest drivers from Lenovo

* Installed following drivers:

    - Audio

    - Chipset

    - Ultranav (Keyboard/Mouse)

    - Graphics driver (Don't let Windows Update install video drivers!)

    - WiFi driver


I have no idea what particular driver solved my problem but it definately made a difference!

I just bought a new 840 SSD to install in my W520 with Windows 8 x64.  To get the Magician software to install, I put it on Windows XP SP3 compatability and then launched the installer from an admin command line.
