Dell Precision T3500 Boot Problem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

System boots into Linux Mint on HDD, but won't boot to Windows 10 on SSD. It boots pass the DELL startup logo, then just sits on the black screen. All other hardware functions normally. BIOS is updated to latest revision for this model (A17). There have been reports and video evidence of windows 10 and SSD's working just fine on this system. The SSD is one I've been using for about a couple months and functions on other computers. If it helps my specifications are as follows:
Intel Xeon W3530 @2.8Ghz
Nvidia GTX 1060 6Gb
12Gb 1066Mhz DDR3 Memory (3x4Gbs)

HDD: 500Gb Western Digital 7200RPM with Linux Mint version 18
SSD: 2Tb Samsung 860 Evo with the latest updates for Windows 10


EDIT 1: While in Linux, I can read data on the SSD and even move files from it. I, however, cannot write to the SSD even when acting as a Super User (admin). This includes moving files into the SSD from Linux and creating new ones.
