On 10/12 my son's gaming desktop displayed "Boot Device Not Found 3F0". Warranty ended 9/26 so here I am needing assistance.
Checked the BIOS System log and the first 03F0 occurred on 10/12. None of the troubleshooting tools could restore Windows. Downloaded the Cloud Recovery tool and initially it failed. Had to pull the PCIe NVMe 1TB SSD and then Recovery tool was able to install Windows 10 on the 1.8TB hard drive. Of course, this has an slight impact on performance.
Since the SSD is an Intel 660p Series, I searched Intel's site for diagnostic tools. Ironically, there is a Client NVMe Windows Driver for Intel SSD dated 10/21. Tried several of their diagnostics tools but none of them can find the SSD.
With Win10 installed on the HDD and the SSD installed, the system will have a long pause then initially boot into Windows. This is unacceptable. Anyone else having this issue? Thoughts on how to revive the SSD when it does not show in the BIOS?
