I was running windows 8.1 with a Samsung 840 EVO ssd. The drive is less than a year old and I was having no problems till yesterday. The computer froze then had to be restarted, thought it was a game issue. it happened again and it would not reboot. I could only get into safemode after it went to the recovery screen. I did a chkdsk but it would get stuck at 12% after an hour and reboot itself to the recovery screen.
I did a full format and installed windows 10 pro (AHCI enabled). It loads into windows fine after install, but it won't restart after shutdown or a restart. It just goes into the same loop. only once did I see the " inaccessible boot drive" screen.
After installing windows I did a chkdsk /scan and it came back with no errors.
I installed windows 10 on an old drive, it seemed like it was fine. it rebooted fine after the first attempt. But i'm back to the same problem. So it might not be the ssd
Thank you for any help.
