The RunCore SSD arrived today. 5 minutes to change it, 10 minutes to reload the Macrium Reflect Image and back in business!

Thanks for everyone's comments.

I got that message this morning. After checking the Dell site, I still had 6 days of warranty left! Called and now have a replacement SSD headed my way. The only clue to a problem was the system slowing down. No errors, just getting slower and slower. Tried to reboot and got the no OS error.

This is how my Runcore 16gb acted before I was unable to boot in safe mode. So is this a controller failure on the SSD?

Thanks a bunch

It's some sort of failure, yes. What seems to happen is that too many flash blocks are considered "bad" by the controller and it gives up. Replacement is the only recourse.
