base, it is fair to ask for information to aid in helping you solve the issue. Please post the requested Disk Management.
I took a quick look at the Speccy in your System specs - not sure when that was created, but hibernation is enabled. If you turn off Fast Start (not to be confused with Fast boot ) hibernation should have been disabled.
Try this method to see if that might be an issue:
They the following in an elevated Command Prompt (Run as Administrator...). There is no output, it just flips the switch.
powercfg /H off
dir /a hiber*.*
If there is a hiberfil.sys file, then hibernation is still enabled or ... it might not get removed until a restart.
Check your power plan to see what is defined for low and critical battery levels. They might still say hibernate, - change them to sleep.
Restart your machine.
There have been a few cases where the battery charge presents an issue. Speccy lists yours at 79% charge.
Try removing the battery and run on AC only when you attempt another install.
set your firmware to default values
After defaulting the firmware check that AHCI is selected.
Snmsung R.A.P.I.D. is enabled according to Speccy - I think this is similar to Fast Boot, you might try disabling that in BIOS as well (Samsung Magician?). From the quick scan I did, RAPID caches the SSD into RAM (1 GB) - how that would affect an install beats me.
BIOS with UEFI support? If that's like HP, then you want a BIOS (MBR ... BIOS or UEFI) support) install flash drive. NTFS should work for a BIOS flash, (I think Rufus denies BIOS and FAT32)

There are reports all over the net about similar issues with Win7 x64 installs. Nothing seems to correlate into an exact answer.
You're up batter!
