I’m having hard drive problems. Shouldn’t be hard to fix, my boot drive is an m2 ssd and sometimes it’s not picked up on startup and sometimes it just randomly crashes. I have an empty m2 slot on my motherboard so I bought another m2 ssd and was planning to clone it this morning and just move on with my life but for some reason I can’t get it to boot at all with both drives mounted at once, so apparently the easy way out is not for me. I’ll be farting around with this for a while, it may just be that the new ssd is bad and needs replaced too but I don’t know that yet. Regardless, I don’t have access to Aspire until I get this nonsense fixed.
I got 13 months out of that ssd, less than half the life I should have gotten from it. I can’t express my joy at the prospect of having to re-install all this crap from scratch just over a year after a complete re-build.
