    Windows 10 (Disk boot failure) more info inside


    Hello WindowsTenForums

    I was wondering if anybody can help me with this problem I seem to have, I used to run windows 7 flawlessly on my SSD with no problems at all, I upgraded to windows 10 a while back and that was fine. But for some reason a few months on windows 10 would just freeze up on me and I was unable to open programs, shut down. It would just completely freeze.

    So I did a fresh install of windows 10 on my ssd and it worked fine again for 2 months.

    Then again today it updated automatically and restarted and it keeps freezing again, and when I try to boot my computer up sometimes it loads windows and sometimes it does not.

    The SATA Controller is looking for hard disk, and it takes a long time to find anything. Then it finds the hdd's and my ssd and it says loading operating system. Then the dots go like this . . . . . . . . . . FAILED TO BOOT FROM DISK

    I ran a CHKSDK /r and /f and that seems to help the problem for sometime. But then its just a matter of time before the problem returns.

    Not sure what the problem is.. ?

    SSD Dying ? But if that is the case why did it work fine for months after a fresh format?

    Sata cable?

    Mobo dying?

    Sorry if this is typed really bad, it's 4am here and I am just a little fustrated.

    Thank you all for readng

    Please fill in your system spec's, make of mobo, age etc. this will help to determine what could be your problem.

    I'm also having issues with my desktop, which started after 10586.0 was installed, that is a few days later, lots of freezing, have to do a cold reboot, there seems to be no reason why.

    I run a dual boot, one with an older HDD running with the insider preview, and a SSD for my main windows 10.

    Both are at the latest update 10586.14.

    My older HDD runs just fine with no lockups, which is almost 10 years old.

    Anyway the SSD is 6 months old and hopefully is not failing.

    Have been doing the online update with my SSD, but since the problem started I've done sfc and dism checks, formatted twice, but the freezing continues intermittently.... we seem to have a similar problem.

    Flopflip welcome to the forums, there are lots of helpful people on here.

    Just another quick update, after running the CHKSDK windows seems to run okay.

    This problem happens only after windows 10 updates...

    I don't really understand how a windows 10 update can break my computer and then a CHKDSDK can ammend it until the next update, where again I will have to repeat the steps.

    Strange behavior for sure, I only found one corrupt check after running SFC /Scannow, It locks up at random times, but mostly when online with any browser, Chrome, Edge or Internet Explorer.


    Just think it's software rather than hardware related, in my case.
