    Hi,

    Glad to see you have it sorted.
    Could that OEM partition have anything to do with overprovisioning of the SSD ?

    Cheers,
    I'm not an expert but am generally aware of SSD over provisioning. As I understand it, the user (me) will never see the over provisioned memory on the SSD. Only the controller sees and uses it. I don't believe that it is assigned to a partition. However, I'm not an expert.

    When I originally installed the SSD, there were only 2 partitions (System reserved & Healthy Boot). Now that I have reformatted, those are the only partitions that exist.

    If over provisioning can result in the system creating a partition, hopefully someone with more knowledge than me can point me to a reference for my further education.

    Hi,

    Nowadays the overprovisioning is controller managed but that wasn't always the case.
    Anyway, no reason to ponder about a partition that's long gone, right ?

    result


    Well, the re-installation of Windows ultimately didn't work. It failed again a few days later. After numerous problem solving efforts and Windows re-installations, I bought a new SSD and replaced the old one.

    This seems to have worked but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the problem doesn't recur.

    Did you review the Win 10 PDF document Incompatibility list for your Computer Brand and Series? It list both the specific Software and Hardware conflicts as well as phase outs.

    Also, have you utilize the Diagnostic Tools?

    Verify/Fix any issue, caution and flagged hardrive and software systems indicated

    You can do this with the following 3 options:

    *System Management and Performance

    *WMIC (use root cli so the results are posted in an easy to read format)

    *3rd party tools (as previously stated, most of these tools IMO are redundant to what has already been provided to us)

    If this comes across as if you are not savvy, that's not my intent....Iron sharpens Iron!!
