    Default Boot fails just as Windows begins to load - G1 Sniper 3

    Hey guys,

    First of all, I want to say that this system was running and working fine for 4 months running Windows 7. All hardware was good and everything was running fine.
    I recently did a clean install of Windows 8. It's been working fine for a while, running everything great, all is well.

    Until one morning I go to power on my system, it goes through Bios and POST beep is good. But as soon as it gets to the screen where it would say "starting windows" it just does a full power off like someone hit the power switch.

    I've fixed this once by taking the windows disk and running repair. Then it worked for about a week or 2 and now again this morning the same issue is back.

    Possible culprits:
    F7 bios on the motherboard
    fast start in windows 8
    sata operation mode / issues with windows 8's EFI
    corrupt boot files (windows updates?)

    Any help would be appreciated guys, thanks in advance.

    Like Wazza recommends I'd think to try disabling fast boot, the try another SATA port then another SATA Cable. Make sure the SSD Power cable is properly seated...

    Have you done any Windows Updates in the last few days? You may want to consider rolling the system back. but try the HW first.

    Main Rig
    OS = Win8.1
    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire
    HD = 4x PNY 120GB Raid 0
    Storage = 2TB WD Black
    PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1300w
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.
