Not sure what happened. I use my notebook occasionally, but mostly, my kids use it for school. Anyway, they went to turn it on, and it acts like its about to boot up and then I get a Boot Menu Pop up with two options:
I have an old Windows Install USB drive, which boots to the options, but when I try to restore, there are no restore points found, repair fails, and there is no option to 'reset' the installation. No log file is shown or referenced.
Errr.....I could use some troubleshooting advice here, I need to get this back up and running. It's running Windows 10. Thanks guys!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Got it fixed. Turns out the SSD is a bit smaller than the cavity it is sitting in and somehow became dislodged. It's hard to boot a HD that cannot be seen.

Usually the drive is installed with rubber rails around it to hold it securely. If you are installing a 7mm high drive into a 9.5mm drive bay, you can use a 2.5 mm spacer like this one: ICY BOX IB-AC729 to secure the drive (not a specific recommendation for that one; it's just the first one I came across in my search).
