Now, I know that there are a lot of posts about SSD
failure, but I couldn't really find any with my exact problem, and I'm too lazy/impatient to keep searching!
My Mini 9 with its original 16GB SSD
running Windows 7 ultimate recently stopped being able to boot Windows, because the SSD
decided to change its name from C to D. I wiped it, and reinstalled Windows. This lasted for about two days, before it decided to refuse to boot. When I tried safe mode, it got stuck on "classpnp.sys". I tried lots of things to fix it, but gave up and tried to install Ubuntu. It gets 10% through the install every time, then comes up with some error about not being able to write to disk or something like that. I tried installing Snow Leopard, but that gets stuck at the spinning Apple logo. I finally tried Windows 7 again, but whether I boot it from the disc, or the USB, it gets to the point where the mouse appears for the first time, then gets stuck, before the first install screen even appears.
In the BIOS, the SSD
appears, and shows its full capacity, but what with the fact that Ubuntu said it couldn't write, OS X failing, the classpnp.sys error, and the Windows 7 boot disc/USB stick not even getting to the first screen, would you say my SSD
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
