WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD problems
Tried Windows 10 2004 twice. First time it failed around 84%. Second time failed at 61%. Tried Windows 10 1909. It managed to install, but as I was copying a file around 4.5GB from my NAS onto the C:\Users\%username%\Desktop folder, it failed. Windows gave me a BSOD and it shut down and rebooted. Checked the Windows Event Logs and there are multiple (as in over 300) EventID 7 Disk error where the details says The Device, \Device\Harddiso0\DR0, has a bad block.
Went back to the store, exchanged the same model, came home and tried again. Windows 10 2004 installed on the first try, but when trying the same test with copying the file, BSOD again. Checked the Event Logs, and similar errors all over the logs.
I then removed the drive from the slot on top of the motherboard, and installed it onto the slot at the bottom of the motherboard, as this board has two NVMe slots. There were similar problems as in freezing, crashing and disk errors, so I think I can at least rule out that the NVMe slot is defective.
I then tried installing Linux Mint on it. The OS installs, but when copying a bunch of smaller files of less than 700MB from my NAS, they couldn't be read, saying something about permission error, but I have the proper permissions, and I even sudo changed the permissions of the files to 777 so that everyone can read/write the files. I can't even delete the files. Very frustrating.
Am I doing something wrong? How do I test this drive properly? I can't even get the OS installed onto this SSD, and if I actually manage to install the OS, it BSODs on me.
Unfortunately, I don't have another PC with an NVMe slot I can try this. Thanks.
