I have my Dell mini 9 with 16Gb SSD
that came with the unit. I partitioned the SSD
into TWO partitions one partition for 10 Gb & other for 6Gb. It was working fine from last 1.3 yrs.
Yesterday, when I was using Boxee, my system hanged. I did a hard re-boot. Upon booting, I get the error as "A disk read error occurred / Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart." Basically, it reads the BIOS & doesnt get into Windows.
1) Did reboot many times, still it doesnt detect the SSD
. Not sure whether SSD
is conked off OR the main boot record was corrupted.
2) During the boot process, I went to Bios settings by pressing 0. There it shows the hard disk as "STEC00001234" and the SSD
size is 16Gb. My question is if the SSD
parameters are displayed correctly, does it mean SSD
is HEALTHY & it is just that Windows installation is corrupted ?
