    Samsung Evo 860 SSD booting intermitently


    Hello all,
    I have found a couple of threads here and saw others having the same issue, but didn't see how they resolved the problem.
    My new SSD boots 50% of the time, when it doesn't I press the reset button to get it to boot up. Runs great once booted.
    Initially I cloned from the old drive w/Macrium Reflect(first mistake *sarc), but after that I always had to boot from SSD manually in bios. Formatted SSD and reinstalled windows 10. Finally I got it to boot automatically but only 50% of the time.

    Tried windows 10 reset and noticed OS freeze/Lagging, I reset it again which fixed the F/L but did not fix the boot problem. I'm thinking maybe a got a bad SSD or somehow I damaged it trying all this stuff. Been working on this on and off for several weeks. Separate issue is monitor won't wake up from sleep mode unless I power the PC off and on, but one problem at a time. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Specs:
    Gigabyte Mobo GA-970A-DS3P
    AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad Core 3.6 GHZ
    SSD Samsung Evo 860
    64 bit
    20 gig of ram

    Here is what I tried in the last two days:

    Reset windows 10 which kept failing to complete "Windows Cannot reset this PC"
    Windows repair disk could not fix it
    Then the BSOD critical error
    So I did a Clean install w/ windows 10 creation tool which fixed errors, but did not fix the boot issue
    Reseated Ram
    Reseated SSD connections
    Swapped SATA cables
    Tried different SATA port
    Tried cold start
    Tried SSD diag tool CrystalDisk and shows good

    Things I haven't tried:

    Update the Bios


    Hope this is enough info. Happy to answer any of your questions.
    Thank you!

    :)

  2. does windows 10 recognize samsung 860 evo

    I've been reading that a number of people are having trouble with windows 10 working with a Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB SSD. I've tried looking on the Samsung website for the driver for this drive and they have all other models except the 860 EVO. Do they work
    together?

    Samsung Evo 860 SSD booting intermitently

    Win10 clean install on Samsung SSD 850 EVO

    BLUF: SSD is not listed ubder "Where do you want to install Windows?"

    Steps Complete:

    1. I've create a Win10 bootable install usb.

    2. I connect the new Samsung SSD 850 EVO via SATA.

    3. I reboot PC and verify SSD is seen by the motherboard/BIOS

    4. Begin Win10 install via usb.

    5. Get to "Where do you want to install Windows?" and the SSD is not listed

    Problems:

    1. Samsung does not offer a driver for the 850 on their website

    2. Cannot locate driver elsewhere

    Unsuccessful Mitigations Steps Attempt:

    A. Format & partition SSD via Windows Disk Management, then retried steps 1-5 above....same result

    B. Clone existing HHD onto SSD via "Image for Windows" by TeraByte, then verified SSD contents via Windows Explorer....similar result

    Can you please offer some advice on locating a driver for a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 1TB drive? Or an alternative method?

    Thank you
