Windows 10: SSD dead? - Reboot and select proper boot device windows 10
I'd still replace that SSD if I were you. If it failed once already, it could easily fail again. No sense taking unnecessary chances. Hope your "bake-offs" continue to work for you, too! Great story. I remember the days when parking a conventional hard disk in the freezer was a recommended technique to get one working again after failure long enough to recover the contents.
Scorched CPU Theory
When an HDD is starting to die, you usually get warning signs, and might be able to save some data.
When an SSD dies, it just stops.
You have just gotten a sign it is failing(with luck).
First you need to get any data you need copied somewhere else right now, and then create a system image if you haven't already, that you can later just reimage onto a new disk(yes simple as that).
Why Test SSD NAND Write Endurance?
When a SSD fails:
A SSD is considered failed when static data is corrupted, the SSD unit stops working or if the SSD performance is permanently degraded to below a usable level.
If SSD performance is seriously reduced we will let it recover during a minimum 6 hours of idle time. If performance issues remain we'll try to contact the manufacturer.

The Corsair, Intel, and Kingston SSDs all issued SMART warnings before their deaths, giving users plenty of time to preserve their data
. The HyperX's warnings ended up being particularly premature, but that's better than no warning at all. Samsung's own software pronounced the 840 Series and 840 Pro to be in good health before their respective deaths. Worryingly, the 840 Series' uncorrectable errors didn't change that cheery assessment
If you write a lot of data, keep an eye out for warning messages, because SSDs don't always fail gracefully. Among the ones we tested, only the Intel 335 Series and first HyperX remained accessible at the end. Even those bricked themselves after a reboot. The others were immediately unresponsive, possibly because they were overwhelmed by incoming writes before attempted resuscitation.
Also, watch for bursts of reallocated sectors. The steady burn rates of the 840 Series and 840 Pro show that SSDs can live long and productive lives even as they sustain mounting flash failures. However, sudden massacres that deviate from the drive's established pattern may hint at impending death, as they did for the Neutron GTX and the first HyperX.
yesterday I've shut down my PC, telling him to install the update.
This morning the PC was on, not responding to any key press, nothing. Pressed reset, and now I'm being greeted with "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot...
Long story short: upgraded from W7 to W10.
Decided to have a clean start and made a wipe.
Always got the error 0xc0000225 when booting, except when the installation USB was plugged-in.
So decided to take on a full wipe: deleted all partitions and...
When turning on my computer today, I had to face a BSOD with the error name being "System Thread Exception not Handled", which prevented me from launching Windows 10 in either way. So I rebooted my computer on my Linux Mint partition...
I am getting that error at splash screen after failed dual boot install of Debian. It was on the same drive, but I do not have another PC to get a boot repair or any other tool. I could go to a friend as last resort. Tried setting bios, still...
Downloaded Windows 10 and started installing it. The install got to around 20% and now I'm stuck on a black screen with "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". I have gone into BIOS and...
