MacBook Air hangs on startup progress bar

My Macbook Air 2012 will not fully boot up, it hangs on the progress bar and won’t go past 50%, even when attempting a boot into Safe Mode.

I have disconnected the battery and reseeded the SSD. But not change.

I have gone into disc recovery mode (Command + R) but the Disk Utility hangs up and will not show any hard drives, and when I attempt to reinstall the OS, it does not move forward.

My assumption is that the internal SSD has corrupted.

Yesterday evening I was able to get into Safe Mode one time, but everything hung up and froze and then I was unable to get back into anything past the progress bar.

I did replace the original SSD, which was corrupt, with this:

MECHREVO 512GB SSD for MacBook Air SSD 2012 Upgrade kit, Replacement for Mac A1465 A1466 SSD

I am wondering if perhaps this SSD has gone bad, but it lasted for almost a calendar year. Could it also be something else that has corrupted the SSD?

I can’t speak on the quality of Mechrevo 512GB SSD. Most of the time when I see this series the SSD’s have failed! But its not the SSD’s fault! Its us! Not understanding how to use them properly.

Unlike a HDD which can rewrite a given block over and over again, SSD’s have a limit of number of rewrites. To offset this SSD’s controller move more worn block areas to less worn, but there is a problem here! Lets say you have 95% of the drive full that only leaves us 5% of the drive free for the OS to do Wear-Leveling.

So what happens as your drive is a boot drive it needs to use the SSD for Virtual RAM, Caches & Indexes which are constantly changing! So this small space wears out! So then your drive dies!

So can you salvage your drive(s)? I doubt it. Once they get to this point they are not worth saving. Hopefully you’ve been good on backing up so you can get going again.

Now you need to think though what is your best direction moving forward, Getting another SSD for your system, or look at getting a newer system (new or used). I would recommend getting a OWC SSD and you may want to get a larger drive if you have a lot of stuff that you just can’t move off your system. Also keep in mind the newer systems have their SSD’s soldered to the logic boards, so instead of a simple replacement of the drive you need a full logic board swap out ($$). I do recommend taking out the AppleCare+ contract if you get anything new. I would make the effort to find a used system that still has a removable SSD.

In any case you want to change your habits, Try to leave 1/3 of your drive unused, don’t drop below 1/4.
