You donīt need XP for flashing new firmwares.

iīm running Windws 7 and i upgraded through the Samsung Updater a few days ago.

just put the PCSuite.exe, FUSUpdater.exe, FUS.exe in compatibility mode XP sp2 or 3

and start as administrator

if your phone stuck at 27% then try to reinstall SSDN_V1.1.808.7165_SETUP_whql.exe

with the needed rights

First time i doubleclicked it, there was nearly no reaction

then another windows popped up and asked me to install it with the needed rights

i clicked yes and installed the driver, now Windows 7 will detect your phone even in Bootloader mode where it stucked earlier.

thatīs what i did.

Unfortunately my laptop doesn't have the necessary Intel technology. Is there any way for me to do this other than dual booting xp?

I have tried changing the permissions of Virtual Windows XP.vhd without success, even though I am Administrator.
I've only just started using Windows 7, so the solution to my problem maybe my unfamiliarity with the OS.

Any thoughts? Thanks
Erm, this might sound a bit stupid, but have you checked the properties of the .vhd file to make sure it isn't 'read only'? Mine was, for some strange reason.

Putting the .vhd in /users/USERNAME/.virtualbox/harddisks/ might help too, program files has some odd permissions...

So I got everything up and running in xp mode. After installing all the drivers and samsung studio 7 (latest edition) when I go to connect the phone it just sits forever and then finally says that its unable to detect the phone through the usb.

I know that this is for flashing but just the simple task of connecting the phone to the samsung studio won't initialize....? Anybody else have this problem?

BTW, I do have windows 7 installed and the xp mode worked perfectly but now I just can't connect.

And yes on the phone its in PC Studio mode under USB connection??????????

Thanks buddy. That worked! Now I'm up on the IF7 firmware (official from PC Suite).
Would you recommend I get one of the other "non-official" Italian or Chinese firmwares even though I have norwegian phone?

Thanks Schniels, worked perfect after following your directions... To be a little more clear here's the deal...

For all windows 7 users, Goto - Start>Computer>local disk (C>Program files>Samsung>Samsung PC Studio 7> Then find FUS.exe, FUSUpdater.exe, and PCSuite.exe > Then right click each one of them and select >properties>compatibility> then checkmark 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' select Windows XP(service pack 3) and checkmark below 'Run this program as Administrator.

Then simply run PC studio and the phone updater and after unzipping and checking software it finally told me "Your software is completely up to date, Thank you for checking" instead of all those other dreaded messages I got before.

So I guess there is no need for xp after all.

For me it was this that clinched it, and made it work:

"if your phone stuck at 27% then try to reinstall SSDN_V1.1.808.7165_SETUP_whql.exe"

That file was never on my Samsung cd, or in the PCSuite updates..
