Hey there bubbleflag75! We completely understand how it feels having to installing the software for the Rift. We want to make sure you're aware that the Oculus software must be installed on your C: drive first and then can be moved to a different location if desired. Please make sure you have enough space on your C: drive in order to install it. In addition it says it is around 16GB, but you will need double that, so 32GB, available in order to install the software. This is to ensure there is extra room for save files, games, etc. Let us know if any of that was helpful or if your issue still persists. Thanks!
