SSD Problems on HP notebook.

Zaiaku 598 27 January 17, 2017 at 07:54 PM
I have a Intel SSD 535 Series 240GB which a notebook I recently purchased. I try putting it in my HP n010dx. I first tried just migrating the windows 10 installation from the previous drive. Windows started up with no problems but after about 1min there would be a crash, notebook would automatically reboot and then get a 03F0 error which is can't find hard-drive or boot device.

Tried change legacy enabled and disabled and got the same results. I thought maybe a file corruption or something to that effect so then decided to do a fresh installation on the drive. Still got the same results and error. I put the drive bacc in the original HP notebook and it booted it with no problems and continued running with no errors.

Tried the original drive that came with the n010dx and working perfectly no I know the motherboard and SATA cable working just fine.

So I know the hard-drive works fine and in great condition and also ruled out file corruption, but can't figure out why the n010dx has problems with the SSD drive.

Looking for anyone to shed some light on this for me.

This might be redundant but I would try this:

1. Access BIOS, load all defaults. There's usually an option to do this at the Exit screen.
2. Save Changes.
3. Power off computer, swap in the SSD.
4. Install Windows 10 from a fresh copy downloaded with the Media Creation Tool

5. Choose the UEFI option for the Windows install.

Other than that, possibly check if the SSD is recognized properly on a different computer.

How are you doing the migration? Is the SSD brand new or previously used?

Could be bad ssd if bought used. Intel 535 used the sandforce 2281 controller which did not have a good reputation for reliability.

Did you do a full format on the drive prior to use?

I've scan the drive many times, no errors on the driver. As a usb external drive I do not have any problems. Only when using it as the main boot drive.

yes, I usually will format about 3 times before doing an installation.

Have you tried going into the BIOS and choosing "LEGACY" Option for "Boot Mode" (F10 in Startup)? See this link for more info [neosmart.net]

Once you do get into a OS - I would also update your BIOS: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drive...el/6970533

yes, as stated it will boot up just then would reset and then can no longer detect the sdd
Bios is fully updated

have not tried safemode since it would seem when place in the other HP notebook with no problems and everything is working just fine without safe mode. I tried win 8.1 with the same outcome.

How are you formatting? 3 times is a bit excessive. If your looking to do a secure deletion for hard drives then DBAN is a widely accepted method.

Shot in the dark but maybe firmware.

Did not to that initially. ran full dianotic scan, 100% good. Firmware is also the latest.






I'm thinking it's something to do with the HP n010dx but can't filter out much of anything. Bios even detects the SSD until the system resets itself. But another reset and it finds it again. For some reason the notebook will only detect the SSDfor a little over a minute and then it can't again until a full reset.
