    See if you can boot this from USB: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    As PE runs from RAM if it still crashes after a couple of minutes you can rule out your disk being the problem as the disk isn't used.

    You can download and run pretty much most portable apps from PE but see if it works first. If it boots to its desktop but crashes after a couple of minutes then it is either your RAM (that you already tested), your logic board or some other part of hardware. If it keeps on working most likely it is your disk or windows installation.

    As it loads the whole image to RAM let it run a few minutes before deciding it doesn't work as reading from USB can be slow. It takes me 2 or 3 minutes to get to the rescue disk desktop on my old systems.

    Great hint Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable PE Rescue Disk

    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable PE Rescue Disk is great project!

    Creating bootable flash drive was not explained well but I used Rufus and now already exploring the content
    of WindowsPE packet.

    Running Acronis True Image disk backup now, which has found some unreadable sector errors - obviously this is exactly the problem source.

    I just wonder, if this bundled WindowsPE Acronis True Image is full version or just some demo.
    Purpose is to copy failed disk to new one in hope that Windows 10 can self heal missing sectors content.

    See if you can run HD Tune or HD Sentinel with the boot rescue to check the drive.
    And run chkdsk /x /f /r to see if you can fix some of the sectors.

    It isn't demo version (as far as I know) just the free version. There are the free versions of Macrium and AOMEI backup software also.

    If you can make a backup image with any of them then unreadable sectors will be skipped. You can then write that image to new disk. Whether it boots will depend if you (well the software) skipped any OS required files. Don't use any clone disk or sector copy option though as that will not help.

    You could even write the image back to the old disk and bad sectors would be automatically skipped but it would be unwise to write to a known bad disk.

    If Windows boots at all you can repair it with repair install (just download latest ISO and install it over the top). Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    It might be quicker in the end to just to reinstall Windows after saving your data but it is worth a try I guess - it should not take long to check. In any case having the image will be a backup of your data if everything else fails.

    Did Macrium display cluster run error or something similar preventing a backup image?
    Were you able to make progress with drive scans:
    Health (SMART)
    Full error scan (surface)
    Did a repeat chkdsk /x /f /r find bitmap problems?

    When yesterday I checked Macrium home page I couldn't find any flash bootable version support info.
    Earlier I have used Casper Disk backup which supported DVD boot media.

    Today I have Windows PE on the flash and first trying Acronis as it's also familiar from the past.
    But Acronis 1st attempt to create backup image failed as computer lost SSD when trying to read bad sectors.
    Now there is Acronis 2nd run, which has slowed down to 20 hours left when reading bad sectors.
    I set Acronis to skip bad sectors but still doesn' t look promising.
    I don't know if WindowsPE Macrium Reflect might be more successful.

    I'm not sure which software is capable to scan SSD - MHDD and Dell laptop HDD tests failed to find any errors ... while Win restore points were corrupted and Acronis can't read whole disk content.

    Image creation fails when Acronis True Image 2017 hangs forever after 10 minutes, when 80-90% completed. (option set to ignore bad sectors)
    Macrium image creation halts with disk I/O error at 80-90%.

    chkdsk /x /f /r fails:
    Stage 4:
    Looking for bad clusters in user file data ....

    A disk read error occurred c0000185
    The disk doesn't have enough space to replace bad clusters detected in file 57964 of name

    continues for 50-100 times until full disk scanned.

    Next looking for disk imaging software which is capable to skip bad sectors in hope that Windows 10 is capable to fix corrupt files on new SSD.
    Any suggestions?

    See if you can move all important files to another drive.
    Then replace the drive.
    To get a visual of the bad sectors you can run:

    I have all documents already backed up from this SSD.
    Now single purpose is to clone Windows 10 to new SSD and hope it's possible to recover op system on new SSD.
    When old SSD is capable to log in with user credentials before hangs, then chances are not very bad.
    How to create disk image skipping bad sectors?

    If the operating system was upgraded during the free upgrade period there should be a digital license.
    If you have a digital license you can then replace the hardware and install a new windows 10 using a bootable windows 10 iso.

    The software to make backup images needs to have a working drive.
    The software found problems with the drive and displayed error messages/codes.
    The chkdsk commands were not able to fix the bitmap.
