  1. Refusal to boot


    I first tried to install Windows 10 to a new ssd in a system with a hard drive that already has windows 8.1 on it. After the install it booted to the flash drive that had the install on it again. I removed that and it failed to boot. I cannot select the ssd in the boot device menu so I choose the hard disk. Sometimes it gives a black screen with text, and other times it says windows needs to be repaired and lets me choose windows 8.1 or 10. I then tried to install windows 10 on the hard drive and now that won 't boot either. I've tried resetting the pc in windows recovery, and that doesn't work, nearly all of the features for repair your pc in the install media, but nothing. Now I'm going to put 8.1 back on the hard drive and try to upgrade from that and then clean install over the new install of windows 10 upgrade. Does anyone have any suggestions before I do that?

    :)

    Windows Refusal to boot

    So I spilled milk on my laptop keyboard..

    The keys didn't work at first, so I got a USB Keyboard. The computer worked fine at first, then when I went to use device manager it gave an error something like MMC can't open this. So I turned my computer completely off and then back on. Ever since, it
    won't let me sign in and reboots after short spans of time on the login page. I also get an error upon booting; C:\Program Files\Wacom\Wacom_Tablet.exe a referral was returned from the server. None of the recovery options work and I've tried everything I can
    think of. Please help!

    Although that sounds like the hard way, it might actually be the best way. Good luck.

  5. The problem is that Windows 8.1 now does the same thing. It gets through its first installation part, tells me to remove the installation media, reboots, and then cannot boot back into windows to complete the installation.

    Can you actually see the ssd at all?

    Are you sure it is properly connected?

    Can't quote remember how, but when you boot from installation usb, go to a command prompt and type

    diskpart

    list disk

    This should show you if ssd is being seen.

  7. The ssd definitely shows up in the bios and in diskpart. The hard drive I used before is having the same problem so I don't think it's an ssd issue.
