Intel NUC NUC8I7BEH2 never fails to destroy my windows after updates again

Just had it happen again after you closed the original topic. Sadly, Windows updates just happen so often and today was the day again.

My SO just booted up her NUC, got greeted by the given screenshot.

Nothing worked except disabling secure boot in the BIOS. As you can see in the report of the old thread, that feature was on and working alright. After disabling it, windows did a restart and after that, it's commonly known 30% updates installed screen show up and completed.

It was not working unattended which is the worst case. I expect the whole system to require a reinstall on the next windows update.

Any further ideas?

This sounds like a bad SSD to me.

Have you tried cleaning the disk with diskpart before reinstalling Windows? You can open a command window with SHIFT+F10 after booting the installation media. Get the drivers from Windows Update only; be sure to check the "optional updates" section as well.

Yes, did a dispart clean on my first installation and always remove all existing parts during windows reinstall.

chkdsk reports no errors, samsung toolkit shows no abnormalities, smart report shows green across the board. I think switching off secure boot should not fix a broken SSD with a windows installation that worked with it prior a windows update.

I can only suggest installing the driver for the NVMe controller from Samsung's support website.
