PC not wanting to boot from SSD

Guys i'm desperate for your help now. I've literally tried everything. EVERYTHING. But it still gives me the same dang error. I've tried changing SATA cables, trying out 5 different copies of Windows and changing molex connectors. Magician gives me a "healthy".Although it gives me a error saying that the disk is frozen. The error that it gives me is "Insert proper boot media and press any key to continue".

Where did you get your install media from ?

Try another drive.

Hi,
Do you remember what your disk management looked like ?
Did you have 100mb system reserved partition ?
About all I can think of is startup repair 3 times in a row with no other drives connected except the ssd :/

Laith,

This looks like a fix for the "Frozen State" problem. Read the "best answer" here:

SSD Frozen State repair help! [Solved] - SSD - Storage

It looks like you'll have to erase the SSD to get it to unfreeze, and then reinstall, but it looks like it might work.

ThrashZone, how am i supposed to run Startup Repair when i can't even boot into Windows? I can try booting off of an USB and use the "Repair your computer" option.

Mellon Head, I can try that. I've tried Secure Erasing from Windows but it told me to do a power cycle which failed. But i can try it from DOS.

Laith,

Make sure when you power cycle that you unplug both the SATA cable and the power cable for more than 5 seconds each, then reconnect them. Don't power cycle the PC.

That is how you do it either by flash media or dvd use recovery tools and startup repair.
