I hope you can help me out.
I have a computer with the following configuration
- Asus M4A785TD-V EV/o
- Kingston hyper-x 12 GB Ram DDR3
- ATI Radeon 5870
- AMD Phenom X2
I wanted to upgrade my performance by replacing the old 600 GB HDD with an 250 GB SSD.
First i tried to clone it.
it constantly came with the error "Reboot and select proper boot device"
I disconnected all other Sata drives including my DVD-Rom and still got the error message.
I tried recovering with an windows DVD 8 but it continues to say "the harddrive is locked" even a complete reinstall from the repair function came up with an error.
After many tries. i stopped connected the ssd with data to my laptop copied my most important data. and removed all the partitions.
inserted it into my pc. and began a clean install.
well everything went fine. i was able to reinstall windows with 1 C: drive of 250GB. i updated several times. with reboot.
However the next morning i turned it on it was applying updates and i could log in. i searched for updates again and went to work.
at work i logged in using teamviewer and finished the updates by restarting....
it did not came back on.
after work. the same error "reboot and select proper boot device" i restarted and it went back into windows. i could update and restart 4 times. when it came with an memory error. that i could not write during system update. by pressing control alt delete it restarted. and then the same message appeared "reboot and select proper boot device"
In the bios the SSD is not listed.
I also tried to flash the bios to the latest version BIOS 2105. still without any result.
is there anything i can try? a bios setting or something?
the manual says it is compatible with an SSD disk.
I have no ideas anymore. please help :(
