A tad confused here so the D: & E: drives are partitions?? or separate drives?

SSD Drive | 250 GB | 2 partitions : C & E ("reserve" + system)
HDD Drive | 1 TB | 2 partitions : D & F (both data storage)

Chkdsk D runs fine, chkdsk E freezes after minutes.

Meanwhile I've decided to go for a clean install on my SSD drive. However windows setup freezes after I choose SSD as destination disk. All this points in the direction of a corrupted SSD.

Opened up the laptop, removed the SSD, installed Win7 on a HDD partition. This finally worked out; Windows was just able to boot.

I've just ordered a new mSATA SSD drive online. It will be deliverd tomorrow. Hopefully a SSD replacement seals the deal. Otherwise it might be some mainboard mSATA controller failure (is this possible?).

Thanks for all the help, I'll keep you updated on the SSD replacement.

Kind regards,
Steven

Hi guys,

Been some while since I reported an update. I was quite busy doing other things lately and since my laptop ran from the HDD as temporary option I didn't get to the new SSD install for some time.

Meanwhile I have installed a new mSATA 850 evo which works fine. During the system crash 2 weeks ago I cloned the crashed SSD with clonezilla to an external HDD - miraculously no errors. I transfered the clone to my new SSD and booted my laptop: succes! Laptop runs like nothing ever happened; all software installed as it was two weeks ago before the crash. Connected the old SSD via mSATA-usb interface: windows prompts something about data corruption. Looks like the old SSD is really toast.

TLDR: Replaced SSD and everything is back to normal.

Thanks guys over here for all the help. I will mark this thread as solved

Kind regards,
Steven

I would wipe the old ssd and then see if it can be used for something else.

Just because data is corrupted doesn't necessarily mean the ssd is bad. It just might be just the data.

I'll give it a try. But both checkdisk as a clean widows install would stall halfway in the process so my guess is the SSD is bad.

Yes a good tip from Layback Bear and might even be worth running a test on it via an external connection using a USB to SATA adaptor (not expensive - see pic)


Another option would be this ditty of mine

BOOTABLE UBUNTU

Make a bootable Ubuntu disk http://www.ubuntu.com/download

Set the BIOS to boot from theoptical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL> select TRYnot INSTALL

When it is finished - it takes verylittle time you will get a screen like in the pic .

Open the drive you want > Userand dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy /paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doingthis.

I am not sure if it will but I haverecovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or justplain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.
