    Why not just wipe the SSD and do a clean install of Windows 10 to it?

    Win 10 crash finally put to rest


    I found a partial solution and was able to recover my data from the Win10 SSD (last known as G). I rolled back my C drive from win 10 to win 8.1. Immediately I had access to my G drive again. So it appears that if you try to have two disks on Win 10 windows will not allow the second to appear on any menu. I then opted to save the data from my drive and wipe the SSD. I have now installed Win10 on the SSD and plan to use it as my primary drive. I can fire up the Win 8.1 or Win 10 from the boot menu. Thank you all for your support. I learned a lot from your suggestions. Don't know how to mark this thread as solved.
