    Win 10 upgrade seems to have crashed SSD


    Hello All,

    My Toshiba Tecra W50 was running fine on Windows 7. Regrettably, I overlooked disabling the popup which automatically scheduled and performed the upgrade to 10.

    While just exploring a bit to decide whether to keep 10 or use the Settings app to return to 7, I started getting "drive failure imminent" messages. Having just gotten the PC back from Toshiba for a repair of the SSD, it seemed a huge coincidence that the drive might actually be failing immediately after the first Win 10 boot.

    Thinking that 10 was the error, I decided to downgrade back to 7. That process seemed to proceed to completion, but now the computer won't boot.

    On power-up, you get the familiar "Starting Windows" flash screen, then it goes to a text screen that says Windows failed to load and gives you the option to run a startup fix. Clicking that, after a short delay, leads to a message that says it can't fix it.

    I'm stuck. Where do I go from here?

    I'm happy to provide more specifics - the above is just to lay out the problem.

    Thanks in advance to all. I'll be searching and reading messages until I hear from you.

    Buddy

    :)

    SSD crash during win 10 upgrade - how to procede with new SSD?

    I had win 8.1 upgrade on a SSD and accepted to upgrade again to win 10.

    The upgrade started and later crashed during a restart. I am totally unable to boot from the SSD.

    (In an other PC it shows up in disk management, but it can not be accessed or initialized - it´s simply toast)

    I now have a new SSD replacement and wonder how to proceed?

    Do I have to reinstall WIN 8.1 and then try the upgrade again, or can I downloaded an iso of win 10 and do a clean install?

    I know that a clean install normally requires that an upgrade is done first. However, what about now when the upgrade is initiated but not complete?

  3. Migrating to a new SSD from crashed drive & Installing Win 10

    Hi,

    My HDD - Win 10 upgraded from Win 7 - crashed recently. I want to upgrade to an SSD and do a clean install of Win 10.

    What is the easiest procedure for the same? Also which product key do I use? - Currently I have access only to the original Win 7 key.

    Thanks

    A clean install of Windows (either 7 or 10) would probably be your best bet to permanently fix the problems.

    Well, sure. Although I don't have any way to do a clean 10 install, and at this point don't really want to even start reopening that can of worms. Just want to get back to 7 and get back to work.

    I'm hoping someone knows a way to get going without starting over from scratch. There's a lot of time invested in this computer that I'd sure like to avoid redoing.
