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

    Drive error - will not boot


    Forgot to attach pictures. Also need to clarify that SSD shows in the boot menu but if selected will show error as before.

    Maybe try this? Or take it to a data recovery professional.....

    Download my Bootable PE Rescue Disk and boot from it... link in my sig below, see if that works..

    The SSD drive with Win 10 (no longer showing) has the problem
    Can no longer see the win 10 SSD drive.
    You appear not to have access to the SSD via windows..

    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.
