Yes it would suggest that it is not the hard drive which is why I am asking if it could be the drive controller or if there is something else someone would suspect. I ended up doing another clean install and found that the problem this time appears to be the Toshiba System Driver
I was attempting to install. I installed only it after several successful reboots on a clean instal and it caused the system repair to happen which was successful in rolling back the update I tried. So I installed other drivers
one by one rebooting each time I had no issues (did not try system driver again). I also got all windows updates installed and it appears to be running fine for now. I am hoping I just had two separate problems that caused the same reaction. The previous hard drive had a bad block (256 mb per block in HD tune). It was also running extremely slow which the new ssd is not doing. Hoping the problem is gone for good and not just waiting to occur again!
