Crucial thread failure BSOD after storm caused power outage

Hello, I am trying to isolate what happened when a power failure last night took down my desktop. I haven't had problems with this computer in two years(and haven't had a power outage in about as long amazingly, one of the few benefits of a drought I guess). Based on what I have found, it is a hardware failure. The error is the:

"A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly ended"

I have been trying to figure out how to read the minidump files with no success and I would like to get my desktop up and running as soon as possible.

Here are some of the symptoms I am seeing. When booted on, two harddrives always show of my four(two 1 TB, 2 SSDs of different makes, one of which is the primary OS drive). The F and C always show, but the other two often do not. Except when I ran Seagate tools. From what I can tell, both of them are on the same pair of ports to the motherboard. The two that do not show up normally, return a bunch of errors on the SeaTools scan for logs reporting and barely function scan wise and won't scan through SMART scan.

The D and E drives almost seem to randomly lose connection.

The computer BSODs on reboot so far approx 50% of the time of 4 boot ups. CHKDISK /F /R returned no errors.

Based on my information and knowledge, I would assume the motherboard is damaged. But without more information I can't tell.

Attached are the Minidump files.

So, if you switch the cable from one of the "working" drives, to one of the drives that isnt showing up, does it show up?

After switching the D and F drive(not the cables yet due to the placement, I would need to move the graphics card) I simply moved which drive was attached to what cable in the back, so the D is using the F cable and vice versa. . D now shows up, F and E showed up for a moment then disappeared after a minute or two.

This is telling me mother board really. Ports look like they got shot, not literally of course but figuratively, on power outage. Though not sure fi that is what caused my blue screens unless I was trying to access a file on the drive before the port failed and thus it dropped the thread.

Try switching a know good drive to the ports so we can rule out the drives being damaged.

I was able to confirm that it is just those two ports that are failing.

I am going to go ahead and mark this as answered.
