Samsung has a number of drives with the '/' character in the BIOS name, 
and unfortunately, the default F9 install makes a path with this name 

I think the downloadable Live Media will work.

Just add the kernel parameter "liveinst" at boot time and it will 
install itself to the hard drive using anaconda. Also there might be a 
icon on the deaktop (after booting) that does the same thing.

I can't swear to this as I build my own bootable Live CDs, and they work 
this way, I'm pretty sure the live media (pre-built) does, too.
