I have a new Samsung SSD in one of my clients laptops. This morning they rang it won't boot into Windows. I did the usually remove all USB and dvd's etc. same issues.
So I got them to bring the machine in. In the BIOS I could see the SSD no worries. still no boot. So I put it into a test machine and went to disk manager.
The drive was not initialized. The drive was was fully black in the windows disk manager. No partitions nothing. WTF!
Good news in this case is the data was all on the server and a clean install on a new SSD solved the issue.
That does not give me any clues to what happened. Is my drive faulty ? Could I get this data back if required.
The drive is a Samsung 850 EVO MZ-75E250
Any ideas on what may have happened people ?
