HDD to SDD replacement, problems with updates after install

I had my HDD or cached drive fail in my surface pro, not sure which, but it basically complained about bad blocks and wouldn’t run. So i figured i would do the SSD replacements detailed here and on http://cesardelatorre.azurewebsites.net/....

I appreciate all the writeups on this, made it a lot easier to get done.

Everything went fine, hardware wise. Drives both replaced, and both visible to windows install, and no smoke.

I CAN install windows, however when I try to update the iastora Raid driver, I either get a bluescreen, or it hangs on reboot, and never comes back. Same happens when I try to run the latest Surface studio driver pack, it just hangs at boot, where the dots circle.

I posted a bit more detail on microsoft site, but it doesn’t look like they support this.

Has anyone tried this recently, or maybe has some ideas on getting the drivers setup right?

Thank you,

Jim

@theofficemaven , @theraptor, (and Cesar De La Torre) I've been thru several of the posts and comments you have made, was hoping you might have some ideas on getting everything stable again for the HDD to SSD conversion on Surface Studio.

All the info has been great, and worked up until I got to windows update/studio drivers.

Thanks

Any specific blue screen code or memory dump? This could at least somehow point to the right direction for troubleshooting.

Surface is actually slightly more than regular PCs, with custom firmware and platform drivers, which may not expect modified configurations.

the normal problem doesn't bluescreen, it just hangs at the windows logo on boot, and restarts over and over. this happens after windows update, or the surface drivers msi is installed.

When I try to manually update the iastora.sys driver(right click install) I get a bluescreen, but can't get to the drives after that. I believe the stop code is "system thread exception not handled", which seems to bring up a ton of articles on unrelated drivers. This bluescreen may just be from me trying to manually change it, and it not being the right method to update it.

It can definitely be done, there are writeups on how to do it, I'm just thinking I'm missing something.

Did you upgrade your BIOS (if it’s even possible in Sirface Studio, which I don’t know for sure)? If not, try that. Not sure what else could help (except trying to install everything when necessary drives are connected to another machine, but I doubt that would work).

this thing has UEFI instead of bios, and I believe it is up to date, however the only option to upgrade it is included in the surface studio drivers pack, which fails to install completely. I do think the version numbers are the latest though. I'll have to double check, thanks for the suggestion

You can update Surface firmware by Windows Update, not sure if it will regress if you replace the drive, usually it will not as it should be inside the motherboard.

If it is inside the system drive, though, replicating that drive in another machine with Acronis or similar stuff might help.

Looks like this may be a case of the driver not liking the NVMe Drive I chose. I put the original tiny ssd in, and it picked up just fine. I now have windows installed there and fully updated. I can’t get the WD Black nvme drive to get past the driver updates. I also tried swapping it back in after all the firmware updates, and still no good. As far as I can tell online the WD and Samsungs have all the same specs, and are comparable devices.

I’m going to try eventually with the recommended Samsung NVMe 960 pro, after a while. For now I’m just happy to have gotten it back online. It is definitely faster, even with the stock ssd. boots almost instantly.

I probably wouldn’t have even thought of doing this, if my HDD hadn’t crashed completely.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!
