    Installed new SSD and HD, Windows keeps "finding errors" and ends up corrupting the new drives!


    So here's the deal: I bought a brand new Sold State Drive and Hard Drive to upgrade my PC's storage.

    Upon installing each one to my computer, going through Disk Management to initialize the drives and formatting them, windows immediately notifies me that it has detected errors with my drives.
    I restart my PC, go through troubleshooting (chkdsk Command Prompt, etc.), try to repair the errors. Nothing works and windows believes my drives are corrupted now.

    I contact Samsung and get the drives repaired, even use different SATA cables and re-install them to the computer, only to have Windows say the drives have errors and are re-corrupted.


    Clearly something is wrong with my computer and not the drives, right? Please help, I want to use these drives!

    :)

    Windows 10 re-installation sequence for new SSD drive


    What is the ideal order of steps (and steps themselves) to install a new 250g SSD drive, and have windows 10 run on it, but leave my current mechanical HD that has windows 10 currently on it in the pc as well for my content, etc?

    Error Code 0x80070017 for new SSD

    Hi there,

    I've been trying to find information about the following, and while there is a lot about the error code 0x80070017, I am yet to find any solution to my issue with the error. Here's the run down:

    • I have an HP PC in which the mechanical hard drive failed. The system also had 8 gb memory.
    • I bought a Samsung Evo 860 1TB SSD to replace broken HD.
    • Also bought 16 gigs memory (why not upgrade that while I'm at it?).
    • Grabbed and put on a USB drive the Windows 10 Creation Tool.
    • Start up the computer and boot off the USB.
    • Start Windows installation on blank, never been used Samsung SSD.
    • Type in the authentication key.
    • Go through the process and it gets stuck, giving me the error code 0x80070017.
    It should be noted that one time it did get through the whole process, but then failed as it was finalizing.

    There seems to be very little information about this error code and how to fix it for new, never used hard drives. Most of what I'm finding is for people upgrading to Windows 10 who have access to a working Windows 7, so they can go in and fix it. (Turn
    off virus protection etc.)

    I've downloaded the Creation Tool twice on two different USB drives (one was brand new bought this morning).

    What gives? Is this a hardware issue? My computer says the new memory and SSD are operating just fine.

    Help! Thanks!

    Installed new SSD and HD, Windows keeps "finding errors" and ends up corrupting the new drives!

    Windows 7 Professional keeps dropping the DVD/CD drive

    Working with a fresh install (2nd attempt) of Windows 7 Professional on new hardware. The motherboard is a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P. Running 4G of RAM and an Intel Q9400 Quad Core CPU. The DVD/CD optical drive is a Pioneer DVR-218L.

    Here's the problem - after two fresh installs, Windows 7 drops the DVD/CD drive and I get the following error in Device Manager (The device cannot start {code 10}). After the install, the drive works for a period of time, then stops working and I get the error code.

    The driver appears to be a standard Windows driver (CD-ROM driver).

    I've tried uninstalling the drive and re-installing it in Device Manager but it does not work - I continue to get the device error.

    I've also swapped out the DVD/CD drive to insure it's not a bad unit. Same problem with both drives.

    What do you suggest for next steps?? Could it be an issue with the motherboard?? A driver problem?

    I visited the Pioneer web site - could not find any help or additional Windows 7 drivers.

    What now??
