I had my HDD fail in the original Surface Studio, and I seen a write up on how to upgrade to SSD drives, figured it was a bonus to get an extra 1tb, and a lot more speed. Everything went fine up until I tried to install the Latest Surface Studio Driver pack. I can install base windows from a USB drive, and it all works,(really fast too!!) however as soon as I do a windows update, or run the Driver pack, and reboot, I get boot failure. (windows logo, and some spinning dots, dots stop half way, and it restarts)
I've also tried the Surface BMR recovery, and can't get that to boot from usb at all, same reaction with the spinning dots. Sorry, wish I had an error code to provide, it just quits and reboots.
I've had some bluescreens along the way, complaining about iastora.sys, it seems like updating to the latest raid driver, is causing me the problem. Which makes me wonder if that isn't what broke the drives in the first place.
Just wondering if anyone had experience with this, I've seen few people on this site saying they had done this, and unfortunately, I didn't see any mention of these errors. Hoping someone has some ideas.
update: I also tried to use the raid driver extracted from the drive pack during install, where it asks to load driver. did that and immediate bluescreen.
