Sorry, I misread.
Is Kies installed? If yes then remove (or disable) it because Odin and Kies don't work well together (they might use the same serial port and that causes issues with Odin). Install just the Samsung USB drivers.
[Q] Why use Kies when using Odin with Windows OS
Posted on March 25, 2012 by tinieblax
I have tried for over a week to flash my SGS2 with Odin from both Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows XP Pro SP3 with no success. I followed instructions to install Kies so that windows installed the Samsung drivers. I closed Kies down and checked that no part of it was running in process by using Task Manager. Odin appeared to run and then hang, somtimes completing with the dread Red colour and Failed! legend. I tried everything. Battery out SIM out. Still no success.
Then I hit on a link to download the Samsung drivers without Kies. I also found references to the fact that Odin and Kies don’t play nice!
So, as it happens my power sockets developed an electrical problem which caused my desktop hard disk to fail. I installed a new OS on a new HDD and this time just the Samsung drivers, NO KIES, then Odin etc. And voilla! The first time I flashed a big green success! I can hardly believe this problem has not been already proved. It seems to apply equally to XP and 7!
