The other day, my computer crashed to a blank, black screen. On reboot, my
BIOS didn't see the SSD that held my OS. I tried swapping the SSD onto
different cables and different motherboard connectors. When I started the
computer back up, it saw the SSD, but gave me a GRUB rescue prompt. On the
next reboot, the BIOS again didn't see the SSD. That's repeatable: warm
boots make the SSD disappear; it re-appears on cold boots, but dumps me to
the GRUB rescue prompt.
I figured the SSD has died and I already requested an RMA, but I can't boot
to my Windows drive if I remove the SSD, so maybe it's not actually dead.
I don't have the patience to troubleshoot from the GRUB rescue prompt and I
wasn't thrilled with Manjaro, so I'm going to try to install good, old
Debian to the SSD while I wait to hear back about an RMA.
