There is somehting wrong with that disk. Normally it tries another disk that has an ACTIVE primary partition and boots from it. And that partition doesn't have a bootmgr. That was the original failure. Now there is only one primary partition that's active. But it can't find the disk.

Have to go... back in 4 hours

yeah im starting to think there is a problem with the SSD Disc, it seems it works for a while then fails and the computer tries to boot from somewhere else and there is nothing to boot from so it gives this error.
Cause remember i mentioned that sometimes the disc does not show up at all and after i reset it shows up.

I also tried it with all the other HD's disconnected from the computer and just the main SSD connected and still gave me the same problem.

At least it has warranty.

what are your thoughts?

Thanks for all the help!!!

That's just what I wanna say! It doesn't show up in BIOS sometimes? And other HDD's show up always? connect ssd to another sata-port... so swap it with a hdd

ssd was inaccessable so Windows 7 crashed and did an automatic reboot. It failed because it still doesn't see it.

How did you disconnect other HDD's? Just disconnected the sata cable or also the power cable? disconnect the power cables to HDD's as well. Maybe your power supply isn't capable to give enough power to keep drives spinning and give ssd power

i disconnected both the sata and power cables
i have a 750w Corsair Power Supply with those same drives for over 2 years si I dont think that could be the case.

when my computer starts up my asus mb detects the drive its gonna boot from and shows it then boots.
Sometimes in the last few days it did not show up and i had to reset the pc for it to show up

the other hds always showed up in my computer

i swapped the ports on the motherboard as well

i did not check/switch the sata cable itself though, maybe thats it (I hope)

honestly I gave up and sent it in to be fixed/checked

what do you think?

Attach ssd with another cable and to another sata port. Also use another power cable.
Just disconnect sata cable and power on the HDD side and put them in SSD.

That cables and sata controller do work all the time!

Perhaps a firmware update on the SSD could be beneficial. The latest firmware for the crucial m4 is located at the following link:

Refer to the update guide at the following link for a step-by-step tutorial on how to upgrade the firmware:

http://edge.crucial.com/firmware/m4/...User_Guide.pdf

These updates have been known to address various reliability issues common to SSDs. I personally don't have a Crucial SSD but I updated the firmware on my OCZ SSD to address performance issues.
