    Samsung 860 EVO 500gb Windows 10 freeze on boot

    The old drive had the issue where every single little process that was opened maxed the CPU to 100% (in task manager). I suspect (not sure if it is correct) that there was some block in the HDD that couldn’t read or write to/from. The new drive doesn’t present that problem when I boot into safe mode, it just has the issue booting into normal windows

    Samsung 860 EVO 500gb Windows 10 freeze on boot

    Unfortunately my other machine is my backup laptop... and It’s a brand new ssd, so it shouldn’t have any problems. (Not to mention it worked fine when I had it in the backup laptop to install windows10 on it)

    Samsung 860 EVO 500gb Windows 10 freeze on boot

    This was my first attempt, and it ended up with Windows freezing on black screen after MCT installed via USB. Anyway, I went back through and deleted all the partitions and tried it. Same thing. Once it got finished with installing from the USB, it asked to restart. It did that, did the spinning wheel, got to 8%, then black screen. I’m fairly certain it is frozen, as this is what it has done previously.

    Samsung 860 EVO 500gb Windows 10 freeze on boot

    Oh. well I attempted to install Win10 on the SSD via USB media creation tool. But like I said, it froze during installation
  5. Hello, I have recently had my hard drive crash, so I updated to the samsung 860 evo 500gb SSD, but now I am having issues even getting my computer to boot. At first, I couldn't even install windows 10 onto it, because my computer would freeze, so I put the SSD into my other computer and installed Win10. Once installed, I threw it back in my "problem" laptop, and it doesn't boot. It gets to the windows logo with the spinning wheel, and freezes. I can boot into windows if I run it in safemode, but not normal mode. Yes, I have AHCI set for SATA settings in BIOS. But in the Samsung Magician program, it says that AHCI is disabled? Also Samsung Magician says that there are no compatibility issues.
