I'm a bit desperate here, since I can't seem to find a way to debug, analyze and fix this issue.
My systems sometimes freezes during the boot process and all I get is black screen.
This happens when the error occurs:
BIOS shows up normally
Window 7 logo is shown for a brief second
With boot details enabled, I see that drivers
are getting loaded until classpnp.sys. After that the screen goes black as well and the system hangs.
Now when I turn on the machine, I get a text screen asking me whether to start normally or run a recovery attempt. Usually starting normally is all it takes and Windows boots up fine.
Once Windows is up and running, it's rock solid. No lockups, no BSODs or whatsoever.
Unfortunately I have no idea how to get debug details of this part of the boot process (os loader phase?).
I already switched the SATA Ports, switched to a different brand and even switched to mSATA. So I'm pretty sure it's not the SSD. Using Windows SATA drivers or Intel RST doesn't make a difference either btw.
Any help is very very appreciated!
