  1. Alienware m17 r4 - critical error - boot failure on device


    Tried to install a second ssd on my gaming laptop, was told to configure new raid volume in bios, now I'm stuck in a "support assist performance check" loop with a critical error stating something about "boot failure on device". The only potential fixes I see when I google it is to try legacy boot ROM (which I don't even have an option for in my bios), or to factory reset from the bios (which I also don't have an option for). When I do the thorough test inside support assist, it tells me everything is absolutely fine and there's no issues.

    What can I do here? I removed the new ssd and left the original in slot 1, but I can't get past the critical error screen other than to go into bios or boot options, which also is no help.

    Any help would be great appreciated!

  3. Alienware m17x r4

    Im wondering whether to buy another alienware m17x r4 laptop on ebay but i heard that dell doesn’t support these laptops or they don’t have the drivers (something like this could you please clarify) Im thinking i might just buy a apple macbook instead
    because i did own an alienware m17x r4 before and had nothing but problems.

    thank you
