Hello Gals and Guys -

 

I have a HP TP01-0066 desktop PC that I got a few years ago.  It came with a 256GB NVMe SSD, but I needed more space and I had a 1TB SATA SSD from my old desktop, so I put that in and installed the OS with no problem.  I found a good deal on a NVMe SSD and bought it.  I installed it do, but it said it could not find a boot device and to run the diagnostic.  The quick and the longer tests said the drive passed, but I still got the F30 when booting.  I reset the BIOS and eventually got Windows to start up like it was going to install, but right before it got the part where the installation started, it shut down.  I was a able to do this a couple times.

 

I know I should probably reseat the drive, but is there something I should look at as a possible culprit?  It's a 1TB Micron 2300 MTFDHBA1T0TDV drive if that makes any difference.

I suspect that Windows has lost its way to the boot loader.

In order to clarify, not all the post happened at the same time? The desktop was working fine, and then you installed the 1TB SSD from the old desktop and installed Windows - everything worked?

Then you installed this 1TB Micron 2300 MTFDHBA1T0TDV  and now it will not boot?

Depending on what you wish to be the final setup.  Do you want the new 1TB Micron 2300 MTFDHBA1T0TDV  to be the boot drive and not use the "other Windows install" or use this new drive or ??

Thanks for the reply Old Man.  I appreciate the help.  Things keep getting stranger.  This morning I booted it up and got to the boot menu.  i selected the optical drive for installation of the Window.  It went right to it and I was able to put Windows on the Micron.  I realized I made a mistake and since I had done nothing to the PC,  decided to reinstall the OS, but I had the same thing happen as yesterday, after the Windows logo shut off and it should have went into the setup, it shut off.

 

After this happened three or four times I began to wonder if there's something wrong with the optical drive.  I had use the disc a few weeks ago and it worked perfectly.  Then it sat untouched since and there's not a mark on it.  I have a desktop optical drive that I had not hooked up so I did and it redid the system on the first attempt,.  Perhaps the optical drive was issue, but I guess its a moot point now.  Thanks again.
