    No go. Only single OS drive contacted, clean boot enabled, spinning circles. I can get into Safe Mode just fine after forcing 3 reboot failures. So the answer lies in the difference between some aspect of Safe Mode and Full Mode.

    FYI, I also disconnected my network so Windows can't go get updates at the end of the boot thinking that maybe that's what is causing the spinning circles, that it's trying to find and install updates.

    Have you at anytime run winver command to see what Windows build # you are on Rob ??
    I also just looked for an old friend of mine to see if he was on......but dam it he isn't. He is REAL Good at Partition problems, and was hoping I could drag his butt over here too. @Word Man but he's not ....yet ....

    Can you type winver in a command prompt admin in safe mode Rob?

    Also do you know which sata port that your SSD is plugged into Rob ? should be either port 0 or port 1 if you don't show a sata port 0 then should be sata port 1

    Yes, I had run winver and I had the latest build I believe. I'll do that again now... Ok, it's: Version 1511 (10586.164)

    So now I'm really stuck. My solution "cannot" be clean reinstall for two reasons. 1) it's likely I'll have the same issue and 2) I'll lose a new big client by spending two weeks rebuilding. I hope some guru has a solution.

    Hi Mike, thanks for your help. Good idea to disconnect all the other drives and focus on the OS drive. Also good Rob to disconnect the network to keep WUs out of the picture at this point.
    I see @essenbe is here as well. We had indication of boot issues from WhoCrashed. Can we get the BSOD crash reporter run in safe mode @essenbe?
    Rob, what do you use for images, Macrium by chance?

    Ha, yes, teams are great.

    So my thinking now is, what is different between Safe Mode and Full Mode such that this problem gets triggered? A lot I'm sure, but I get to Safe Mode just fine. That tells me it's not a hardware issue, correct?

    Maybe its not hardware, but we can't rule that out yet Rob ......just got to take little steps....and have lots of patience. Do you have a 2nd computer that you can use handy??
