    Booting to SSD shows black screen with green lines


    Hello everyone,

    I have searched the entire internet for something similar to this problem and haven't found anything, So I decided to post here hoping you guys could help me debug this problem and help other people in the future.

    My system:
    2HDDs 500gb 2.5"
    i7-4790
    16gb RAM

    So I recently bought (1 week ago) an SSD from Sandisk, model SSD PLUS 120GB, the first thing I tried to do was clone my windows drive to the SSD but that didn't work, it showed a black screen as the one in the picture I am attaching.

    I gave up cloning and decided to install fresh, but since I didnt have any flashdrive lying aroud I made a bootable partition in one of my HDD and transfered windows installer there.

    I deleted all SSD partitions and let windows installer format a new drive and install there, installation went fine but the same black screen shows up when I boot to SSD, I inserted this SSD on another computer and the same result, black screen.

    The SSD is apparently working since I can read/write data on it.

    I am being able to boot into the windows in my SSD because my windows installer on the other drive recognizes that I have a windows 10 installed somewhere and gives me the option to boot there. But if I remove the drive that has the windows installer I get stuck in the black screen.

    Anyone has ever seen this? Do you have any suggestion of what I should do? Is this drive broken?

    Thanks in Advance
    Regards,

    Hugo

    Update: I have never performed this Sanitization process in my SSD, I am also attaching a new picture showing How I am being able to boot into win10. After the bios tries to boot from ssd a couple of times it gives up and moves to the next drive, then this screen shows up:

    I know im booting from SSD when I choose Windows 10 because I dont have any other OS installed and the speed is lightning quick.

    The problem is because your boot files got written to the HDD that you booted the computer from to install Windows 10. You can either create a FAT32 EFI System Partition on the SSD and write the boot files to it using the bcdboot command - or bite the bullet, purchase a USB flash drive to create a Windows 10 installer and use that to install Windows 10 with - highly recommended that you disconnect the second Hard Drive when you install Windows 10 to the SSD.

    Thank for your reply, I was just doing exactly that and problem solved.

    Got a new flash drive, disconnected everything but the SSD and installed windows clean.
