Hard Disk Error but Hard Disk fine

I have a HP Ency Phoenix -810-160 that had a dead HD. I got a good deal on a SSD and thus replaced the drive. When I attempted to run the recovery disks, I ran into the issue that I kept getting a Hard Drisk Error blue screen at start up. 

 

I found it odd so I took the drive and tested it on another computer. No issue. I've now been able to install windows 8.1 back on it and even upgraded it to Windows 10 before the deadline but I still get the blue sceen error. 

 

All tests pass for both memory and the hard disk. System also runs fine with the exception that when I start up the computer there is a massive delay, then I get the Hard Disk Error, If I just F2 kit and then close and continue, the system finishes to start up. 

 

I think I may be having a firmware issue but HP Assist is installed and all updates are suposed to be running. 

 

Anyone outthere running into a similar issue? I feel like I'm having a false positive since I went up to a Solid State Drive.

Hard Disk Error but Hard Disk fine

How much capacity, in GB, does the SSD have?

 

Less than 256GB is unlikely to work with the recovery media.

Hard Disk Error but Hard Disk fine

It's a Patriot 120GB SSD. Considering how compact the Recovery media files are I find it odd tha **bleep** wouldn't run. I do, however, already have a fullt functional OS and all runnin on the drive and it's fully updated which is why I'm finding it peculiar it still gives me a hard disk error even though all else checks out. With the full install, all the software I wanted to put back on there and all aupdates I still have over 80GB left. I am refurbishing this PC for general admin stuff. Nothing overly consumptive so I didn't bother with too large a drive.
