    Who stole my SSD?

    Long story short, I can't find my SSD....
    when I turn on my computer I get this error:

    Windows failed to start. A Recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

    1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
    2. Choose your langugae settings, and then click next
    3. Click "repair your computer."

    Status: 0xc000000e
    Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.


    I tried running a Disk Check on it and everything seems to be ok.
    And then I came over this:


    I'm Fixed - 0xc000000e problem!!!

    1. First Load Windows RE from Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2
    2. Open Diskpart and make problematic partition Active
    3. Open bcdedit and you should get something like this:

    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier {default}
    device unknown <===0xc000000e problem!
    path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description Windows Server 2008 R2
    locale en-US
    inherit {bootloadersettings}
    recoverysequence {e0025536-b36d-11de-aadd-ddc0b5870e2c}
    recoveryenabled Yes
    osdevice unknown <===0xc000000e problem!
    systemroot \Windows
    resumeobject {e0025534-b36d-11de-aadd-ddc0b5870e2c}
    nx OptOut
    hypervisorlaunchtype Auto


    4. Enter these commands:

    bcdedit /set {Your-OS-Identifier} device partition=X:
    bcdedit /set {Your-OS-Identifier} osdevice partition=X:
    bcdedit

    Where X: - drive letter with your problematic OS in Windows RE. You can find it by opening notepad and pressing save

    5. Reboot



    Everything was fine until I tried the second step, making the partition active. When I go into DiskPart and run "list disk" it only shows my HDD and not my SSD which of course contains my OS...

    Any help would be most welcome.
    Thanks

    Looks like you have a dead ssd. (assuming you checked for loose cables)
    Sadly, I think its time to look at the rma process.

    Was afraid of that....
    Is there a way to check if it's dead?

    the ssd not showing up in diskpart is a big clue

    My ocz vertex once gave me trouble and the only thing that worked was to use the ocz toolbox to fix some weird partition issue. Maybe the manufacturer of yours ssd has a similar program but with the ssd not showing up in diskpart I wouldn't get my hopes up.

    Could be a fix for it online if you search for a fix, or if it's really dead, can replace. Actually, which SSD is it? Brand and model?

    Some OCZ ones have a habit of disappearing. It's why I got a Crucial one.

    Poke it. See if it moves.


    This blows. Aren't SSDs supposed to be super reliable?


    I hide mine in my aquarium. No one would expect to find 60GB there.


    Q9300 with 4 GB DDR2 1066 RAM
    UltraSharp 2408WFP (needs to be RMA'ed) on GeForce GTX 285 on two 18 amp 12V lines
    Audigy X-Fi Fatal1ty w/ Logitech Z-5500 & Sennheiser HD 280 Pro and HD 595
    plus the usual stuff in a poorly designed Antec P180 PW case

    This is obviously a case for the computer po po to solve. Yeah, it's supposed to be reliable however too much human error, do not want, etc.

    Re: Who stole my SSD?

    My sata cable flops off my mechanical drive about once every six months. And they have locking clips on them. Not big fan of SATA connectors, myself. I have thought about gluing them on but I haven't bothered with it yet. You can't tell by looking at it. It backs off just enough to lose connection, which apparently is very easy.
    ...Does anybody else feel like Congress simply bailed themselves out? Isn't that what they really mean by a bailout?
