Default Error on installing windows

I have a Samsung SATA hard drive. I can't seem to install windows onto it. Everytime the hard drive copies the information off of the window cd, it says error in copying some files. I don't know whether my hard drive is defective or something else is wrong. Anyone have any idea?

did you format the drive 1st? Change your boot order and boot from the CD to format and set up your drive then install the OS.
Also Microbell has a sticky thread at the top of the page" Setup SATA drives " to help you further
