HP ProBook 450 G3 with SSD - P/N 1LF93UT
client purchased 2 of these and both at the same time started randomly crashing and then displaying "boot device not found" Hard Disk (3F0).
Power cycling would allow the laptops to boot again.
Note these have SSD devices not traditional hard drives.
HP suggested running diagnostics which all came back clean.
They sent a tech to replace the system boards as they had noted issues with this.
One of the laptops has since been stable - the other continues to have random "boot device not found" errors, but after several power cycles it will boot.
HP now wants to replace the SSD, which will require OS install, app and data restore, hours of work.
Has anyone found a fix for this not requiring a new drive? I don't think it's the drive as it happened on 2 identical machines and the first was fixed by the board replacement.
