F120 disk bbot failure


Recommended Posts

I have been using my F120 for a year. Everything was fine till yesterday. It suddenly stopped working. When I rebooted my PC, F120 couldn't be detected (there was a DISK BOOT FAILURE). PC detects F120 on cold boot and tries to repair windows, but after loading files, it will do nothing.

 

I swapped sata cables, but no luck.

 

I checked F120 health status month ago. It was 100%.

 

Firmware is 2.0.

MB - GA-X58A-UD5 rev 2.0. BIOS - FE5.

RAM - 6 GB.

CPU - Core i7 930 (overclocked to 4 GHz).

Cooler - Thermalright Archon.

Second HDD - WD 20EADS.

Video card - Zotac GTX 570.

PSU - Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000w.

-Does the BIOS detect the F120 on every boot or only cold boots?

-If it is detected, What does it do?, Does the BIOS let you boot into it or the message "DISK BOOT FAILURE" appears or Does it tell you to select "Repair Windows" or "Start Windows normally?

Only on cold boots.

 

If not cold boot DISK BOOT FAILURE appears.

 

If it is a cold boot, it tells to select either "Repair Windows" or "Start Windows normally".

If I select Repair Windows, it loads windows files and a black screen appears, HDD LED indicator doesn't show any activity.

If I choose Start Windows normally, it tries to load windows - the logo appears, a few minutes passes and then (sometimes BSOD appears - the failure code - 0x000000F4) and the PC reboots.

-Have you tried Repair Install using the Windows Installer disk?

 

-Is the data on the SSD important?

If yes, Connect it to another PC and see if you can access the drive.

If no, Try a secure erase and reinstall Windows.

 

The data on the SSD is important.

I've already connected it to another PC, the SSD is recognized, but I can't access it.

 

I tried to reinstall windows, but the installation disc doesn't see the SSD.

 

How can I do the secure erase?
