    .
    No. It hits the bootloader entry and then quits out of it and repeats the loop. It bootloops.

    Then the options are:

    1) troubleshooting
    2) reset save files equivalent (reinstall drivers and applications)
    3) clean install

    What are the status of the important files?

    a) backup image
    b) backup files and folders
    c) no backup
    d) no important files

    I called MSI. They don't think RAM install has anything to do with it.
    I dont think it has anything to do with RAM install. I think my bootloader has become corrupt. And RAM install was just the thing that coincided, meaning I brought it down installed and now cannot bring up.

    I have way too many enties in NVRAM (bcdedit) and something is confused. Although I am apparently recalling the right boot entry.

    What program do I install on the flash drive to boot off the flash and take a look at the file contents? I've done it once before.

    1) Find 3 flash drives that you can format (> or = 8 GB)

    2) Create a bootable Windows 10 iso:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10
    Download Windows 10 ISO File
    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10

    3) Create a Kyhi boot rescue flash drive:
    Toolkit Item: Kyhi’s Rescue Disk – Win10.Guru

    4) Optional: Create a bootable Ubuntu flash drive:
    Create a bootable USB stick on Windows | Ubuntu tutorials

    5) These 3 tools can be used to backup important files, troubleshoot, perform reset save files equivalent, clean install, etc.

    6) What are the status of the important files?

    a) backup image
    b) backup files and folders
    c) no backup
    d) no important files

    Kyhi's rescue disk is the one you must have.
    Once you boot there is a GUI with a lot of rescue and maintenance tools.
    I created a Win 10 folder on the flash disk and copied all Win 10 iso files and folders to it.
    To install all you have to do is to run setup.

    Understood.

    I suppose the thing that confuses me is why *both* SSDs fail to boot. I have Win10-1903 on disk #1 and also cloned via Macrium Reflect to disk #2. Same disk model, everything identical. It used to boot. Now neither one does.

    How could the *clone* disk have gone corrupt, it wasn't even used or booted into. There has to be a common denominator to this.

    I will go through these steps. Boot via flash and take a look around and see what's on those disks.

    Did you checked the BIOS settings to see if the SSD is the primary boot disk?
