    Not able to format 512GB Crucial MX100 (SDD#1)

    October 2016

    Hi everybody,
    Like I say in the topic I can’t format my SSD#1 Crucial MX100 512GB.
    Here what I try. Thanks.

    Operating System: Windows 10 full updated (October 2016)
    Computer: Asus Maximus Formula (buy at 2008)
    BIOS: Legacy BIOS (mean no UEFI - Unified Extensible Firmware Interface)

    BIOS and Windows 10 recognized the SDD#1.

    1- I try Disk Management to format the SDD#1.
    One with “Quick format” option check and one with “Quick format” uncheck.

    Same result for both:
    The windows message received:
    “Virtual Disk Manager” (title of the windows showing the message)
    The format did not complete successfully (the message)
    2- For this step I just connect the SDD#1 and the CDROM
    I try to boot from Windows 10 DVD installation, choose “Install” and Windows is not able to delete the partition on the SDD#1. It is not able to create a partition neither. And sure it’s not able to install Windows 10 on the SDD#1.
    3- For this step I just connect the SDD#1 and the CDROM
    I try to boot from Windows 10 DVD installation, choose “Repair”, go in command prompt and do the following:

    List disk
    List volume

    Select disk 0
    Select volume 1

    Message received:
    DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. See the System Event Log for more information.
    4- For this step I connect all my SDD#1 and HDD and put the SDD#1 on other port.
    I go to CMD and enter the same command than above for same result.
    This time I can check the Event Viewer:

    Event Viewer
    464 Error and 1 Warning

    Event Properties - Event 153, disk
    The IO operation at logical block address 0x0 for Disk 2 (PDO name: \Device\0000002a) was retried.

    Errors (repeat the following errors 232 time ? - I don't check all but it appear to be same two errors)
    Event Properties - Event 24620, BitLocker Driver
    Encrypted volume check: Volume information on \\?\Volume{01128aa1-0000-0000-007e-000000000000} cannot be read.

    Event Properties - Event 7, disk
    The device, \Device\Harddisk2\DR2, has a bad block.
    5- I try the free program “ MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition 9.1” and nothing work. Not able to delete partion not able to create one.
    6- I try GParted under XUbuntu and it’s not work too.

    I am very sad. I do not have $ 200 for buying another SSD.
    Are there something to do to format the SSD # 1?
    I can’t believe it's broken. I have hard disks (trays) much older than it and that still works
