after a Windows 10 crash, my NUC7I5BNH does not boot from the installed M.2 SSD drive anymore. I never had any problems before.
The drive is still recognized by the bios but by neither a Windows nor an Ubuntu boot stick. I updated my bios to BNKBL357.86A.0076.2019.0219.1646 and tried all the tricks I can find on this website but none worked.
Can anyone help me with this problem?
Thank you in advance!
Hi @Yaco ,
thanks a lot for your quick answer and your help!
Try to repair the boot sector using the following procedure. I'm assuming that your O.S. is Windows 10.
1. Boot from your Windows 10 installation USB.
2. Select your language preferences and click/tap on Next.
3. Click/tap on Repair your computer at the bottom.
4. Click/tap on Troubleshoot.
5. Click/tap on Advanced options.
6. Click on Command Prompt
7. In the Command Prompt write the following command:
Hit enter after each command:
Exit from Command Prompt, shut down your NUC and try to power it ON again.
If restoring the boot will not fix the boot problem, still you may try another possibility.
Thank you so much for your advice!
Unfortunately I get in I/O device error using those commands in the command prompt. The last command tells me that there are 0 Windows versions.
I assume this means that there is either an error on the SSD or something on the mainboard is broken. What do you recommend to find out?
Hey Leon and David,
In the end I was able to boot using an Ubuntu boot stick. I found out that the SSD was corrupt using Ubuntu to check it. But fortunately i was able to save all my data, even though some of it was corrupt as well.
Thanks a lot for all your help! This community is incredibly friendly and helpful!
